Research Interests

My research interests centre around teaching and assessment in economics. Do different types of assessments measure different things? Do different types of students perform better or worse in different types of assessments? I am also interested in what we actually achieve in principles of economics classes. Are we creating economically literate people or just people who can pass the exam?

  • Economics education: teaching principles
  • National accounts
  • NZ official statistics
