The analysis is based on data from an experiment with high school students which answered multiple choice items from the TIMS-Study. Like in that study, the setup did not discourage students from guessing. Students with a salary based on individual performance scored insignificantly better than students with a fixed payout or a payout which is based on the performance of the entire group. However, incentives have an impact. The group with individualized payments showed significantly more guessing activities than the others.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:41:14Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Eisenkopf, Gerald</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Eisenkopf, Gerald</dc:creator> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
