  • Sneyers, E. and De Witte, K.: The interaction between dropout, graduation rates and quality ratings in universities - TIER research
    Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Sneyers E and De Witte K The interaction between dropout graduation rates and quality ratings in universities Abstract This paper investigates in a non parametric framework whether academic programs maximize their student graduation rates and program quality ratings given the first year student dropout rates In addition it explores what institutional and program characteristics explain this interaction The results show that there exists a large variation in how academic programs are able to deal with the selective nature of first year dropout Nevertheless we can accurately explain the variation among programs by program and institutional characteristics It seems that universities can maximize the relation between first year dropout graduation rates and quality ratings in several ways 1 by improving student program satisfaction 2 by better preparing certain groups of students for higher education 3 by supporting male students 4 by supporting ethnic minority students 5 by attracting older staff and 6 by strengthening the selective nature of the first year i e increasing the academic dismissal policy threshold JEL Classification C14 C61 I21 Keywords Student dropout Student graduation Conditional efficiency Nonparametric estimation Universities Related information Related People Eline Sneyers Prof dr De Witte Kristof Working Paper Download Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics News LEER Workshop on Education Economics Nederland in ideeën 2015 Brede scholen leiden

    Contact Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Why do Students Leave Education Early Theory and Evidence on high school dropout rates Sofie Cabus Kristof De Witte Abstract This paper contributes to the growing literature on school dropout by proposing and empirically testing a theoretical framework on the enrollment decision of youngsters in secondary education The model relates school dropout to time preferences motivation opportunity costs and policy measures and is empirically tested on longitudinal data of about 5 000 Dutch vocational students We evaluate the enrollment decision of students for 1 di erent intensity levels of dropout prevention policy and for 2 di erent levels of economic development The results indicate that the model can accurately predict actual enrollment rates over the period 2000 2011 Using the model to forecast the level of school dropout in the Netherlands by the year 2020 it is observed that a very strict dropout prevention policy could yield nearly maximum enrollment rates i e 97 in schools However the annual budget for a similar dropout prevention policy is estimated at e574 million or 0 10 of the Dutch GDP Keywords Dropout prevention Economic modeling Secondary education JEL code I21 I28 Related information Related People Dr Cabus Sofie Prof dr De Witte Kristof Working Paper Download TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics News LEER Workshop on Education Economics Nederland in ideeën 2015 Brede scholen leiden niet tot beter

  • Van Klaveren C., B. van Praag and H. Maassen van den Brink. Collective Labor Supply and Housework with Non-Participation of Women in Paid Labor - TIER research
    We estimate a collective time allocation model where two earner households behave as if the spouses maximize a household utility function and where one earner households where only the man works behave as if the spouses maximize a household utility function conditional on the zero job hour choice of the woman We find that the shape of the individual indifference curves are mainly influenced by leisure and the household income For one earner households also household production is important and this is because there are relatively more children in these households Differences between one earner and two earner households seem to reflect the difference in specialization behavior of the spouses Women in one earner households have more bargaining power than their partner and we find the opposite for two earner households The bargaining position in two earner households is determined by the individual wages while for one earner households it is determined by the wage rate of the man the number of children and age Finally we evaluate how one extra hour of female labor supply influences the household and the individual utility levels assuming that the labor supply of women may be non optimal for both one and two earner households An increase of the woman s labor hours would be a Pareto improvement for two earner households For one earner households we find that an extra hour of labor is beneficial for the household and for the woman but not for the man Related information Related People Prof dr Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Working Paper Download TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers

  • Van Klaveren, C. & Wolf, Inge de. Systematic Reviews in Education Research: When Do Effect Studies Provide Evidence? - TIER research
    Systematic Reviews in Education Research When Do Effect Studies Provide Evidence Chris Van Klaveren Inge De Wolf Systematic reviews often include studies based on rather ad hoc inclusion criteria that may lead to inconcistencies in the outcomes generated by these reviews This study therefore derives a set of inclusion criteria from the theoretical literature on causal inference It furthermore presents a list of study characteristics that reviews should minimally provide if possible By comparing the derived inclusion criteria in this study with the inclusion criteria used in several educational reviews we conclude that the generated outcomes of systematic reviews frequently rely on rather incomplete and inconsistent inclusion criteria JEL Code I20 C01 Keywords causal inference systematic reviews education Related information Related People Dr Chris Van Klaveren dr Inge de Wolf Working Paper Download TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics News LEER

    Papers UM Working Papers RUG The effect of student led conferences on academic achievement An experiment in Dutch secondary education Maartje van der Eem and Carla Haelermans Abstract This article explores the effect of student led conferences on academic results using a randomized field experiment The sample consists of 130 grade 10 students in Dutch secondary education All students in the sample had two conferences during one school year where they discussed their academic progress and study behaviour with their tutor and parents Students in the treatment group prepared their own conference and took the lead during the conference Students in the control group had teacher led conferences The results show that student led conferences lead to a significant increase of the overall average grade and of the average math grade However no results were found for language The results on the overall average grade seem to be driven by the significant results for math which can be explained by the fact that this subject requires lots of practice which many students set as a goal during student led conferences Analyses on differential groups show that boys and low performing students benefit more from the treatment than girls and middle and high performing students Keywords student led conference academic achievement randomized field experiment secondary education JEL C93 I21 Related information Related People Dr Carla Haelermans Working Paper Download TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics News LEER Workshop on Education Economics Nederland
