讲座题目：When to Schedule Attention Instrument for learning: A Field Experiment
内容摘要：How to improve students’engagement and performance is a central question in education and it becomes even more challenging after COVID-19 pandemic. In this field experiment, we utilize a cognitively taxing task: notes-taking, to draw students' attention in the class, and examine how the timing of assigned task affects their performance and learning dynamics. We find that assigning to later weeks help improve final grades for low-ability (impatient) students, not for high-ability (patient) ones. One underlying driving force is the learning behavioral change for these students, e.g., they tend to submit their homework earlier than before.
