    Flanders Abstract Using an unique and rich dataset of a large European higher vocational institute this paper examines what program student and didactical characteristics can explain the differences among courses in obtaining high course grades and student success rates given the student intake Applying an advanced conditional and robust efficiency model we examine the role of an elsewhere available textbook versus or combined with a course specific textbook and learning materials from video or internet We also test the influence on course efficiency from objectivistic versus constructivist learning activities Finally we test for the role of the examination format i e written exam oral exam multiple choice internship versus continuous assessment The results suggest that courses with distance learning have a significantly lower efficiency than courses with face to face education We observe that courses with objectivistic characteristics mainly lectures have an unfavorable influence on the course efficiency in comparison to courses with only constructivist characteristics e g group work In comparison to oral examinations courses with written examinations have lower grades and lower success rates given the student intake Courses using standard text books and courses that combine own course materials with a general textbook and internet materials have lower efficiency than courses which developed their own course materials Keywords Higher vocational education Conditional and robust efficiency Learning environment Student outcomes Student success rates Related information Related People 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
