Nudging Students Into Better Grade OutcomesDespite the proliferation of learning management systems, it is common for students to ask the instructor their grade during the semester. "Grade Nudge" is a Google Drive based program that indicates not only the student's current grade, but the possible grade outcomes given various scores. In a randomized trial, this treatment has been shown to increase student performance by four percentage points (e.g. a C+ student performs at a B- level).
