Title: Loss Aversion in the Classroom: an experimental approach (with Barna Bakó, Éva Holb)

Abstract:    This paper investigates the impact of loss aversion framing on students’ test scores through a field experiment conducted in an economics course. Grounded in Prospect Theory, the study aims to elucidate how individuals respond to losses and gains in an academic environment using three treatments: giving points,  endowing students with a hundred percent score and subtracting points with wrong answers, and changing between giving and subtracting points. We find evidence that loss-framing increases study outcomes compared to simply getting points. We do not find evidence for heterogeneous gender-effects, and our hypothesis on the effect of loss-aversion diminishing over time is also not supported by our results.
