Seminar: Does it matter how you reach your competence level? Educational success after private tutoring
Dinsdag 4 september 2018 geeft Maria Zumbuehl (Universteit Bern) een presentatie getiteld: "Does it matter how you reach your competence level? Educational success after private tutoring"
Decisions on educational transitions typically rely on achievement measures. To reach a required achievement threshold students may make use of additional resources, such as private tutoring. We investigate how the use of private tutoring relates to the transition probability to an academically demanding post compulsory school and the probability to successfully pass through this school, controlling for the students competencies after tutoring, but before the transition. Using PISA and linked register data from Switzerland, we find that students who had private tutoring before the transition are more likely to fail in post-compulsory education than students who had the same competencies without tutoring.
