  • Working memory training improves reasoning skills in secondary social studies education: evidence from an experimental study - TIER research
    RUG Working memory training improves reasoning skills in secondary social studies education evidence from an experimental study Abstract Evidence suggests that Working memory abilities and transfer of content based WM training correlate with school based deductive reasoning achievements In this study a combined WM capacity and WM reasoning strategies training is incorporated in secondary school social studies curricula to investigate its effects on reasoning achievements compared to control group conditions Four secondary classes in three schools in the Netherlands participated in the experiment with a total of 81 general education medium track 16 year old students WM capacity and reasoning achievements improved significantly after 4 and 8 weeks of training and remained significant 8 weeks after training ended The significant gain in reasoning abilities is demonstrated in both experimental subgroups while both control group results did not improve The study supports the notion that transfer of WM training to deductive school based reasoning can be successful when WM capacity training is supported by strategy training and both components contain content based contexts Furthermore it supports preliminary evidence of accelerated learning following WM training Key words reasoning abilities secondary education social studies brain based learning working memory Related information Related People Dr Ghysels Joris Prof dr Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Prof dr Wim Groot Roel Ariës 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

  • Bartelet, Dimona, Haelermans, Carla, Groot, Wim & Maassen van den Brink, Henriette. The variability in the effect of additional education on different mathematical skills in primary school - A regression discontinuity analysis - TIER research
    1 Top Institute for Evidence Based Education Research Maastricht University Maastricht 6200 MD The Netherlands 2 Faculty of Psychology Neuroscience Maastricht University Maastricht 6200 MD The Netherlands 3 Centre for Innovations and Public Sector Efficiency Studies Delft University of Technology The Netherlands Abstract This paper explores the variability in the effect of an additional year of education on different basic mathematical skills which are taught to children and explicitly repeated at different points in time during elementary school In addition the role of child specific characteristics and the role of the school is addressed Using a regression discontinuity approach we estimate the local education effect for a range of successive elementary school grade cohorts at six schools in the Netherlands while including child specific characteristics and school fixed effects The results indicate that the effect of education is contingent upon the mathematical skills and grade levels studied A significant education effect is observed the year after children have first learned a mathematical skill and in the last year of primary school which can be explained by the additional focus that is being put on elementary mathematics skills in these years Furthermore the outcomes suggest that children s multiplication skills are significantly lower if their school emphasizes child centered natural learning and multigrade teaching instead of traditional classroom learning JEL Classification I20 I21 Key words return to education mathematic abilities primary school regression discontinuity Please contact the authors if you want to download this working paper carla haelermans maastrichtuniversity nl Related information Related People Dr Carla Haelermans Prof dr Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Prof dr Wim Groot 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

    Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Mismatch between Education and the Labour Market in the Netherlands Is it a Reality or a Myth The Employers Perspective Abstract Almost 50 percent of Dutch employers reported mismatch between skill demand and skill supply in 1991 In 2011 this rate was only 25 percent One potential explanation for this decline is that employers benefitted from formal schooling trends that developed in response to the increasing demand for higher educated graduates This hypothesis is tested in a twostep empirical framework using data from the Dutch Labour Demand Panel that covers the period between 1991 and 2011 and consists of 7 451 unique companies First we show that an increase in formal schooling of the labour force with one month increases the schooling level of the staff with almost 0 3 months Second we link these changes in the schooling level of the staff owing to a higher educated labour force with mismatch The results indicate that a one month increase in the companies workforce average schooling level decreases the probability that companies report mismatch with 2 7 percentage points Keywords Education Employer Historical Trends Mismatch Skills Related information Related People Dr Cabus Sofie Melline Somers 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
