Influence of Course Delivery Method and Proctoring on Performance in Introductory Economics

Student performances on the final exam in introductory economics courses taught online and in the classroom were compared to consider the effect of proctoring the final exam. Students who took a course in the classroom did better on a proctored final exam than those taking the course online. Students in an online class taking a non-proctored final exam online scored more than one full letter grade higher than those taking a proctored final.
