Class Size and Achievement in Introductory Economics: Evidence from the TUCE III Data.
Kennedy, Peter E; Siegfried, John J.
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p385-94 Oct 1997
Explores whether class size affects achievement in introductory college economics, using the 1988-89 Test of Understanding in College Economics database (TUCE III). Results indicate that neither class size nor certain controlled class characteristics affect student achievement. Results are markedly robust, when using SAT scores to control for ability and when TUCE test results count toward final grades. (34 references) (MLH)
