  • UM Project 01 How effective are training accounts? Werkt het schoolingsbudget? - TIER research
    augustus 2009 Leven lang leren is vooral leren op de werkplek Het overgrote deel van de scholing die na het initieel onderwijs wordt gevolgd is op een of andere manier gericht op verbetering van de arbeidsmarktpositie of de loopbaanmogelijkheden in het bedrijf waar men werkt Jaarlijks volgt ongeveer een derde van alle Nederlandse werknemers een bedrijfsopleiding Dit zijn ruim 1 3 miljoen werknemers Deze opleidingen kosten in totaal zo n 3 1 miljard euro ofwel 0 6 van het BNP Een overzichtsstudie van Groot Maassen van den Brink 2008 geeft aan dat het rendement van bedrijfsopleidingen hoog is Studies die hebben gekeken naar het effect van bedrijfsopleidingen op productiviteit geven aan dat een 10 toename van de investering in bedrijfsopleiding leidt tot een 0 7 tot 73 toename van de arbeidsproductiviteit Ook werknemers profiteren van bedrijfsopleidingen deelname aan bedrijfsopleidingen leidt tot 1 8 loongroei De verschillen in uitkomst worden verklaard door verschillen in de aard en omvang van de scholing meetmethoden en de mate waarin scholing productief wordt gemaakt op de arbeidsmarkt De deelname aan bedrijfsgerelateerde scholing is niet voor iedereen gelijk Mannen volgen vaker een opleiding dan vrouwen voltijders vaker dan deeltijders werknemers in de publieke sector vaker dan werknemers in de marktsector en jongere werknemers vaker dan oudere werknemers om een paar verschillen in de deelname aan scholing te noemen Related information Related People 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 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

  • UM Project 02 Student performance and teacher quality - TIER research
    Netherlands we need information on teachers and their students over time In this way we can monitor changes in student outcomes such as changes in reading and math performance and relate them to teacher characteristics However these data are currently not available and so we plan to collect them within another project where extended school days and summer schools in primary education are evaluated for four years Based on the data that we have in mind we first plan to replicate the U S research for the Netherlands by relating standard teacher characteristics such as years of teaching experience highest education level age and sex to student outcomes Second we relate teacher characteristics to student outcomes that are less often considered such as the lecturing styles of teachers teacher and teaching attitudes and whether teachers have children of their own Third we examine an interesting research question for the Netherlands namely whether the route to the highest education level is related with student performance This is interesting because it is sometimes said that teacher graduates of the PABO who have done and finished MBO perform less well than teacher graduates who have done and finished HAVO VWO Project status and forecast The first data collection is planned in February and the second data collection is planned in June At the moment the teacher surveys are made and we in the starting up phase of the experiment As soon as the February and June data are collected and received we can examine the research question s stated above Second research question are student outcomes affected by differences in lecturing styles Because there is hardly empirical evidence that observed teacher characteristics are related to student performance this raises the question if the things that teachers do during class are more important than

  • UM Project 03 Extended school times in primary education - TIER research
    date 06 augustus 2009 Increasing disadvantaged pupils instruction time for math and language in primary education is seen as a potentially effective way to raise their educational achievement and close the gap with non disadvantaged pupils In the Netherlands the ministry of Education Culture and Science believes extending school times can be beneficial for disadvantaged Dutch primary school pupils educational achievement However no evaluations of extended school time programs have taken place in the Netherlands and the effectiveness of such programs therefore is not ensured Experience in extending school times has primarily been gained in the United States and the vast majority of program evaluations have taken place there Some of those evaluations find positive effects and others find no effect of extending school times The ambiguity of the available evidence is further obscured by the varying but often poor quality of that evidence Given that extending school times is costly and that the available evidence is scant ambiguous and not necessarily valid for the Dutch situation it is important that such an evaluation take place in the Netherlands In April 2009 a ministry subsidy went into effect to support extended school time programs in Dutch primary education TIER will evaluate the success of these programs and examine the conditions of their effectiveness and the mechanisms behind that potential effect Related information Related People 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 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

    discussions are hardly made These group discussions however are of influence on the height of the standards since standards are adjusted based on the arguments for lowering or raising them This study describes how participants adjust the height of their standards in response to the small group discussion and therefore contributes to insight in the factors that influence standard setting The leading research question is what is the relation between the standards that participants set and their discussions during the standard setting task To answer the research question small group discussions during two standard setting tasks are audio recorded and analyzed In September 2010 standards for reading comprehension were set for grade 2 and 3 March 2011 the same group of teachers set standards for math for grades 1 2 and 3 Approximately 35 teachers remedial teachers and school directors participated in the standard setting procedures They set standards on 4 levels Minimum Fundamental Proficient and Advanced and discussed these in small groups after which they could adjust the height of their standards Standards were formulated on the national proficiency scale of Cito the Dutch testing and assessment centre The results of the standard setting are analyzed twofold first the heights of the initial individual standards are compared to the heights of the standards after small group discussion Second the contributions of the participants during group discussion are analyzed These two types of data are then merged to see how adjustments in the height of the standards relate to the group discussions All discussions are analyzed using a coding scheme like in studies of Mercer 1995 Snow Kurland 1996 in which every 20 seconds is recorded who is speaking whether the conversation was about learning content reading or math and which role the speaker took in group dynamics Group dynamics is about what participants do in conversation like asking questions giving an opinion summarizing or dis agreeing Group discussions in which many questions are asked many opinions are given and participants respond critically to each other will lead to standards that are more thoroughly grounded especially when the discussion is mostly about the content of reading or math First analyses of the standards setting task for reading comprehension show that the average height of the four standards is hardly adjusted after group discussion Minimum is raised 0 73 95 confidence interval between 0 46 and 1 91 Fundamental is lowered 1 12 2 18 0 6 Proficient is lowered 2 30 3 89 0 71 and Advanced is lowered 1 24 3 96 1 48 However there are major differences in the adjustments of individual participants These differences can not be explained by participants moving towards each other in the small groups Almost one third of the participants hardly adjusted their standards 0 2 points while 9 participants adjusted their standards with at least 20 points The group discussions will be analyzed to understand why some participants make major adjustments to their standards after group discussions and others do not
