Caviglia-Harris, Jill – Journal of Economic Education, 2020
Economists largely agree that writing is fundamental to understanding and communicating economics and can serve as an effective way to teach students to "think like economists."

Halliday, Simon D. – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
In economic development and other economics electives, students regularly encounter economic measures of absolute and relative deprivation, from poverty measures like the Foster-Greer-Thorbecke index to measures of distribution like the Gini index. By "doing economics," students practice applying economic measurement to real-world data…

Bayer, Amanda; Wilcox, David W. – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Economic education is distributed unequally. Among U.S. undergraduates, women and underrepresented minority students collectively major in economics at 0.36 the rate that white, non-Hispanic men do. The authors establish a definition of full inclusion in economic education and use that definition to evaluate the status quo and to compare…

R Markdown is a new technology that provides a solution by integrating writing, statistical work and computation into a single document. R Markdown benefits students and instructors by streamlining teaching,…

Emerson, Tisha L. N.; McGoldrick, KimMarie – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Using student transcripts from six institutions over a 23-year timespan, the authors investigate the movement of students into and out of the economics major. Considerable movement between majors occurs with 83 percent of economics graduates switching in after their first principles course. These eventual majors come from a variety of sources, but…

Swann, G. M. Peter – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Many empirical economists say that the teaching of econometrics is unbalanced, and students are not well-prepared for the serious problems they will encounter with real data. Here, the author considers the problem of noisy data, which is present in most econometric studies, but receives far too little attention. Most econometric studies are done…

Cohen, Avi J.; Williams, Andrea L. – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Despite widely acknowledged benefits of integrating writing into economics courses, instructors' costs are often prohibitive. To reduce costs and make writing assignments more feasible, the authors describe multi-part, scaffolded writing assignments developed by an economist and a WAC (Writing Across the Curriculum) specialist, integrated into an…

Bosshardt, William B.; Walstad, William – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
In this study, the authors analyze the undergraduate economics coursework of U.S. college graduates who became pre-college classroom teachers. The results show that teachers successfully completed on average the equivalent of about half an economics course in their undergraduate coursework. About 6 in 10 teachers earned no course credits in…

Sirois, Louis-Philippe – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Economics and business students are taught that sunk costs are irrelevant to their decisions. Yet, there is ample evidence that managers fail to integrate this simple rule and fall prey to what is known as the sunk-costs bias. To mitigate cognitive biases, such as the sunk-cost bias, educators must raise students' awareness of these common…
