Learning in pandemic times: Anxiety, cognitive capacities and decision-making of university students

January 21 2021

This research project aims at better understanding the consequences of this major, sudden, and society-wide shock on university students who, by definition, are at the doorstep of their professional life and need substantial cognitive resources to make the most of their university training. We investigate the following question: Does the anxiety generated by the Covid-19 pandemic affect the learning and decision-making capacities of students and, if yes, by how much and through which channels? We specifically test the impact of the negative labor-market and social consequences of the Covid-19 crisis on students’ cognitive abilities, confidence and locus of control, expectations, risk preferences, and mental health.
In order to uncover mechanisms and allow sharper recommendations about student support policies, our study is designed to quantify the relative importance of worries regarding future labor-market opportunities and the impairment of social life and network, test the role of the competitive pressure, and perform a variety of heterogeneity analyses to identify particularly vulnerable groups such as female, low economic background and depression-prone students.
