This article examines the determinants of student performance in a second-year undergraduate economics course at a major Australian university–the University of Technology Sydney. This article contributes to the literature by focusing on economics teaching in second-year, which is an area that has received little scholarly interest. The relevant data was collected by administering a survey and accessing student records, ultimately providing a usable sample group of 122 students. Out of a wide ra...
Support for developing writing within a disciplinary context has led to widespread embedding of academic literacy in the curriculum. Yet when embedding does take place it is often left to delivery from writing specialists working collaboratively with the discipline academic. Despite the widely held opinion that it is “the tutor’s role as expert speaker of a specialized discourse” (Northedge, 2003) to give students access to that discourse, programs that embed writing practices into academic cont...

Educators and researchers are increasingly calling for the processes of writing and knowledge construction to be an integral part of disciplinary learning. This article contributes to the literature by presenting an empirical analysis of a programme that was designed to expose students to the complexities of academic practices in conjunction with disciplinary concepts. The impact of the programme was evaluated through analysis of student grades before and after its implementation and student and...

It is widely reported that previous study in economics and maths play an important role in determining student performance in tertiary economics. This paper examines the determination of academic performance by adding a slightly broader range of factors that include socio-economic background to the main factors already identified in the literature. The paper regresses overall subject results for students enrolled in a core, first year economics subject at a large cosmopolitan university against ...

This paper reports a pedagogical strategy employed to teach the AS-AD model. Dolan & Stevens (2006) stress the importance of teaching macroeconomics with relevance , and in this vein the issue of the macroeconomic effect of substantial increases in oil prices was used as a focus for teaching the AS-AD model in the first semester of 2006. This strategy also had a substantial blended learning dimension which Fox & MacKeogh (2003) argue can generate deeper student learning than traditional, pure, f...

The authors report on the design and implementation of a pilot program to extend the principles of intensive writing outlined by W. Lee Hansen (1998), Murray S. Simpson and Shireen E. Carroll (1999) and David Carless (2006) to large macroeconomics classes. The key aspect of this program was its collaborative nature, with staff from two specialist units joining forces with two economics instructors to provide students with significant resources and direction in a short program of writing, embedde...

This paper reports on the evaluation of a writing program embedded within an intermediate macroeconomics course at an Australian university. This program was designed to address core issues identified by an academic literacies analysis of what might be called the higher education writing problem: an observed poor quality in the writing of higher education students across a range of disciplines. The program attempted to close an expectations gap between student and academic perceptions of what co...

In the previous issue of this journal, we provided a survey of AS-AD models used in intermediate macroeconomic textbooks. That exercise was seen as preliminary to a careful consideration of criticisms made of the AS-AD model that suggest it should cease to be used as a device for teaching intermediate macroeconomics. In this paper, we undertake this investigation and examine a range of problems that have been identified with the AS-AD model. We argue that that while a number of these criticisms ...
