Economics is all about choices, and as an economist, this characteristic is reflected in my teaching style. I believe that people respond to incentives, and that they make choices based on their personal cost-benefit analysis. Because of this belief, I offer many assessment choices to my students. These various available assessment types allow students to choose assignments that interest them because they're already good at that type of assignment, or maybe because they would like to learn how to do it. The choices also give students the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning, and to reflect on ways to become even better learners.
