  • We examine the effect of an integrity pilot campaign on undergraduates' behavior. As with many costly small-scale experiments and pilot programs, our statistical inference has to rely on small sample size. To tackle this issue, we perform a Bayesian retrospective power analysis. In our setup, a lecturer intentionally makes mistakes that favors students' grades, who decide whether to disclose them or not. We find evidence that at least in the short term, the pilot campaign has a positive impact on the students' disclosure probability.
