Study: Random events may have ripple effect on students' test-taking and their lives
from The Huffington Post
Students taking standardized tests should hope there are not high levels of pollution in the air on testing day. A new working paper released by the National Bureau of Economic Research suggests that students in Israel who took high-stakes exams in areas with high levels of air pollution faced negative impacts throughout their lives. Researchers said they found a substantial negative relationship between students' exposure to air pollution on test days and their test scores, which has significant implications for educational attainment and future earnings.
