Their paper explores the effect of small commitments on academic performance. 

Both papers were presented at the American Economic Association (AEA) annual meeting in January 2021: one at the Enhancing Learning in Economics session sponsored by the Committee on Economic Education and the other at the Women in the Economics Professions session sponsored by the Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession.

Established in 1885, the AEA is a non-profit, non-partisan, scholarly association dedicated to the discussion and publication of economics research.
