The Role of Frequent Short Exams in Improving Student Performance in Hybrid Global Business Classes
Journal of Education for Business Volume 93, Number 2, ISSN 0883-2323
The authors investigate whether frequent in class exams can improve the performance of students in hybrid global business courses. An experiment was conducted in three hybrid sections of a global business course exposing students to short in class exams. The expectation of a short exam forces students to watch the online lectures and study the course material. By having more prepared students, the professor can devote class time to discussing international business issues. This results in significantly higher student performance. The performance of 182 students was examined and the results show significant improvements for all groups.
