It's Trinkaus week on NCBI ROFL! All this week, we'll be featuring articles by John Trinkaus, whose work gives us "an informal look" at many aspects of everyday life. Enjoy!Following instructions on a final examination: an informal look. "Of a total of 914 undergraduate college students over 5 years 600 (about 66%) were in full compliance with a simple instruction for how to enter their names on their final examination papers; approximately 33% were not. The compliance rate over the years declined from 73% to 59%." |||
