OLTR: Introductory and Principles of Agricultural Economics and Economics

A Personalized Take-Home Exam for Introductory Economics

Eduardo Cenci, University of Wisconsin – Madison
Description: This take-home exam uses personalized questions to reduce the possibility that students copy answers from each other and from the material. Students use examples they have created before for discussion boards, or make new ones. They can pick different expressions for the demand curve in some questions, and come up with their own estimates in others, thus creating variation in the numerical answers. The most “valuable” questions ask students to interpret and explain relationships and results. This material includes three documents: exam questions, answer sheet, and suggested answers. I included also a couple of supporting. Materials can be found by clicking on the Access Materials button. Copyright Agreement: CC BY-SA.
