  • Johan Coenen, Wim Groot, Henriette Maassen van den Brink & Chris van Klaveren; Teacher characteristics and their effects on student test scores: A best-evidence review - TIER research
    There is an abundance of literature that examines how teacher characteristics are related to student test scores Reviews summarizing the results of these studies do not always consider the strength of the evidence which might contribute to the fact that the existing research on the eff ects of teacher characteristics on student test scores remains inconclusive This review considers the strength of the empirical evidence of the reviewed studies and examines whether teacher characteristics are related to student test scores This review investigates both acquired and innate teacher characteristics The literature shows that studies which identify causal e ffects are scarce The literature allows a cautious conclusion that teacher test scores and ability are important predictors of student test scores Teacher experience is also related to student performance Especially the first years seem of high importance Certi cation in subject especially in math is related to higher student test scores Diff erent roads of teachers to certi fication do not lead to different student learning gains Advanced degrees such as Master degrees are not associated with higher student test scores Gender interactions between teachers and students do not seem to be related to student performance Evidence on national board certifi ed teachers and on race interactions is inconclusive Related information Related People Coenen Johan Dr Chris Van Klaveren Prof dr Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Prof dr Wim Groot 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

    UM Working Papers RUG The Effects of Ability Tracking of Future Primary School Teachers on Student Performance The Effects of Ability Tracking of Future Primary School Teachers on Student Performance Johan Coenen Chris van Klaveren Wim Groot and Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Abstract Because of the Dutch tracking system primary school teachers in the Netherlands can have a vocational or a higher secondary background Policymakers and school principles worry that teachers with vocational backgrounds are less capable to teach math and reading This study therefore examines the e ects of ability tracking of future primary school teachers on the students math and reading performance We exploit data of 91 schools for all primary school children in grades 3 4 and 5 and identify the tracking e ect by exploiting unique information on how teachers are assigned to classes based on their teaching abilities The estimation results for math reading indicate that test scores are 2 12 of a standard deviation lower if their teacher had a vocational background The results for reading are however not signi cant at the 10 con dence level and the tracking estimates appear to be less stable and precise JEL codes I20 I21 I29 Keywords Teacher Student achievement Ability tracking Test Scores Related information Related People Dr Chris Van Klaveren Prof dr Henriëtte Maassen van den Brink Prof dr Wim Groot 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

    Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Did Cultural and Artistic Education in the Netherlands increase Student Participation in High Cultural Events Marie Louise Damen Chris Van Klaveren Abstract This study examines whether Cultural and Artistic Education that was implemented by the Dutch Ministry of Education Culture and Science in 1999 caused students to participate more in high cultural events A unique feature of the intervention was that students were free to choose the type of cultural event they participated in So the intervention relied on the intrinsic motivation of students to participate in high cultural events while there was no reason to assume that this motivation was present given the existing literature We find that Cultural and Artistic Education did increase the student participation in high culture but did not increase student participation in popular culture The effect of the intervention is however small While student characteristics did not affect the observed differences in high cultural participation over time the fraction of immigrant students in the class did the lower this fraction the more students participate in high cultural events Finally the effect seems to represent at least partly the intrinsic motivation of students for high culture JEL Codes A2 Z1 Keywords Culture Arts Education Student Participation 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 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

    libraries using a generalised conditional efficiency framework Provision of most public goods e g health care library services education utilities can be characterised by a two stage production process The first stage translates basic inputs e g labor and capital into service potential e g opening hours while the second stage describes how these programmatic inputs are transformed into observed outputs e g school outcomes library circulation While the latter stage is best analyzed in a supply demand framework particularly in the former stage one would like to have efficient public production Hence unlike previous work on public sector efficiency which often conflates both production stages this paper analyses how political economy factors shape efficient public good provision in stage one using local public libraries as our centre of attention To do so we use a specially tailored fully non parametric efficiency model The model is rooted in popular Data Envelopment Analysis models but allows for both outlying observations and heterogeneity i e a conditional efficiency model Using an exceptionally rich dataset comprising all 290 Flemish public libraries our findings suggest that the ideological stance of the local government the wealth and density of the local population and the source of library funding i e local funding versus intergovernmental transfers are crucial determinants of library efficiency Keywords Nonparametric estimation Conditional efficiency Political economy Public good provision Libraries JEL classification C14 C61 I21 Related information Related People 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
