    Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG The effect of peer socioeconomic status on student achievement a meta analysis Reyn van Ewijk Peter Sleegers Abstract Previous studies on the effects on students test scores of their peers socioeconomic status SES reported varying results A meta regression analysis including 30 studies on the topic shows that the compositional effect that researchers find is strongly related to how they measure SES and to their model choice If they measure SES dichotomously e g free lunch eligibility or include several average SES variables in one model they find smaller effects than when using a composite that captures several SES dimensions Composition measured at cohort school level is associated with smaller effects than composition measured at class level Researchers estimating compositional effects without controlling for prior achievement or not taking into account the potential for omitted variables bias risk overestimating the effect Correcting for a large set of not well thought over covariates may lead to an underestimation of the compositional effect by artificially explaining away the effect Little evidence was found that effect sizes differ with sample characteristics such as test type language vs math and country Estimates for a hypothetical study making a number of ideal choices suggest that peer SES may be an important determinant of academic achievement Related information Related Projects Performance standards on mathematics 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
