In this paper, we estimate differences in examination behavior between immigrants and natives, by examining differences in the propensity to forego a passing grade on a final exam in order to retake that final exam. Retaking a final exam involves some level of uncertainty, so differences in examination behavior may be due to differences in…

Differences in receiving the scholarship allow us to decompose the effect of the program on enrolling into separate visitation and scholarship effects. Visitation appears to increase enrollment, and the…

Fernandes, Reynaldo; Menezes-Filho, Naercio – Education Economics, 2020
The central argument of the article is that charter schools operate as a mechanism to circumvent the institutional constraints imposed on the public manager and thus restore the 'market' equilibrium in which all students have the same purchasing power. This changes the mechanisms of hiring and allocating teachers, making the system more equitable…

This paper examines the determinants of retention and GPA for a large population of students enrolled at a U.S. public four-year university. Using a Heckman selection model to correct for sample selection bias, we find that cognitive factors positively relate to GPA over the college career and that non-cognitive factors have a stronger association…
