Testing the Effectiveness of Online Assignments in Theory of Finance
Batu, Michael; Bower, Nancy; Lun, Esmond; Sadanand, Asha
Journal of Education for Business, v93 n3 p119-127 2018
The authors investigated the effectiveness of online versus paper assignments using final examination scores in three cohorts of theory of finance. In particular, two cohorts were exposed to online assignments while another cohort was exposed to traditional assignments. The central result is that exposure to online assignments robustly leads to higher final exam scores, all else being equal. The authors also found a lower level of engagement as shown by low assignment completion rates for students exposed to online assignments.
