Dalgaard, Bruce R.; And Others – Journal of Economic Education, 1984
The general educational research literature indicates that computer-assisted instruction (CAI) can be an effective instructional strategy. However, there is a need for methods and tools for measuring the cost effectiveness of CAI. A taxonomy for addressing questions of cost in CAI is presented. (Author/RM)

Bryant, William D. A. – Journal of Economic Education, 1997
Maintains that most graduate-level economics textbooks rarely mention the need for consumers to be above their minimum wealth position as a condition for market equilibrium.

Siegfried, John J. – Journal of Economic Education, 1997
Notes the trend of declining enrollments in undergraduate economic programs in the United States and discusses its impact. Although similar enrollment drops have occurred twice since World War II, this one arrives at a time of academic budget-cutting and a "soft" market for Ph.Ds. Includes statistics and tabular data.

Sosin, Kim; And Others – Journal of Economic Education, 1997
Uses test questions from the Basic Economics Test (BET) to reveal that elementary students are capable of understanding economics concepts. Maintains that neither ethnic background nor parental income makes a difference in economic learning. The most statistically significant determinant of improved scores was the extent to which a concept was…

Gremmen, Hans; Potters, Jan – Journal of Economic Education, 1997
Presents the results of a study that measured the efficacy of an international economics simulation among undergraduates.

A multiple choice test and posttest questionnaire suggests that classroom games are more effective than…

Shelburn, Marsha R.; Lewellyn, Patsy G. – Journal of Economic Education, 1995
Focuses on the state of gender bias in graduate economics education using a mail questionnaire to persons earning doctoral degrees in economics during 1970-89. Women reported less social contact, fewer collaborative publications, and less access to academic/professional advice from predominantly male faculty members. (MJP)

Salemi, Michael K. – Journal of Economic Education, 1996
Briefly reviews the declining enrollment rates for undergraduate economics majors. Observes that after record enrollments during the 1980s, interest in a bachelor's economics degree dropped sharply in the 1990s. Discusses possible reasons for this decline and provides statistics. (MJP)

Greene, Benjamin – Journal of Economic Education, 1997
Challenges the assumption that female students enter college possessing greater verbal abilities than male students. The results of reading comprehension exercises conducted in introductory macroeconomics courses over a four-year period reveal little dichotomy in gender-specific performance. These findings are generally supported by SAT scores.…

Chizmar, John F.; Ostrosky, Anthony L – Journal of Economic Education, 1998
Suggests that using the one-minute paper to teach an introductory economics course increases economic knowledge regardless of student ability level and instructor characteristics. The one-minute paper is a form of feedback where the students answer a few basic questions about the lesson at the end of the class. (MJP)

Birks, Stuart; Lage, Maureen J.; Treglia, Michael – Journal of Economic Education, 1998
Maintains that there is an inconsistency in the regression analysis of the data presented in Maureen J. Lage and Michael Treglia's 1996 article, "The Impact of Integrating Scholarship on Women into Introductory Economics." The authors admit the error, correct it, and report no difference in their original conclusions. (MJP)

Holahan, William L. – Journal of Economic Education, 1998
Uses five unusual indifference curve exercises to show how changing the jail sentence and changing the reward for good behavior can influence the crime rate. Recommends eliminating minimum sentencing while raising sentencing and increasing the rewards for good behavior. Includes illustrative graphs for each exercise. (MJP)

Yates, Andrew J. – Journal of Economic Education, 1998
Maintains that the equal marginal value principle may not be optimal in the analysis of the cost-effectiveness of policies to reduce auto emissions, the economics of garbage disposal, and the economics of pollution abatement. Argues that examining these exceptions can help students understand the equal marginal value principle. (MJP)
