CInSt Research Seminar "Does grading bias affect indigenous college students in Mexico? Evidence from a field experiment": Francisco Cabrera (UDEM Business School and HSE)
Francisco Cabrera (UDEM Business School and HSE) is going to present his paper "Does grading bias affect indigenous college students in Mexico? Evidence from a field experiment" on regular CInSt research seminar on March, 4
Overcoming ethnic grading bias is one of the many challenges education systems may face in addressing educational inequities. Based on the results from a field experiment, we show that indigenous students in a higher education institution in Mexico obtain lower grades than nonindigenous students with similar academic performance, with a negative difference equivalent to 0.26 s.d. Our findings suggest that stereotypes and social prejudices among faculty are the main explanatory factors after other individual characteristics are controlled. Options to reduce grading bias are examined in the final section of this article to suggest potential interventions to overcome this problem.
