AF: Small: Mechanism Design for the Classroom

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project develops a theory of mechanism design for the classroom. Mechanism design for the classroom exhibits many of the concerns of mechanism design at large; however, it affords distinct opportunities for a dialogue between theory and practice as it provides solutions many researchers of mechanism design could directly deploy in their teaching. The proposal has three main thrusts: fair and accurate grading of heterogenous tasks, incentivizing effort (and, thus, learning), and feedback mechanisms. Incentivizing effort is a key new domain in algorithmic mechanism design is concerned with the optimization of scoring rules which are in broad use outside of the classroom as well.
