The Effect of a Homework Grade Cap in an Introductory Finance Class
Cannonier, Colin; Chen, Dennis; Smolira, Joe
Journal of Education for Business, v91 n2 p95-100 2016
The authors used data collected from various sections of principles of finance classes at a private university to examine the effect of utilizing a homework grade cap policy. The results indicate that the homework grade cap policy increased the homework scores and that an increase in homework scores improved performance of the students on exams. An increase in homework scores triggered by the cap policy resulted in an increase of overall exam performance by about 0.4%. The results are robust to the inclusion of demographic variables and other factors likely to affect exam outcomes.
