Incentives in Education and Moral Behavior in Groups

Project: Dissertation

Project Details


In this thesis, I use experiments to study people’s behavior. In
the first part, I present the results of a field experiment that studies how students’
performance is affected by incentives. In the second part, I present the results of
two lab experiments studying how people’s willingness to make a moral decision
depends on whether they are alone or in a group with others.
