- Workshop "Efficiency Measurement of Educational Systems"
- Louvain-la-Neuve, CORE, Belgium
- The efficiency of the educational system is a central aspect of significant debates between teachers, school managers, parents and policy makers. Lots of databases on school attainment are available for many countries over the world, sometimes with extremely rich informations at the student, school or teacher level. Nevertheless, to exploit this plethora of informations new modeling strategies are also needed. The goal of this workshop is to join the expertise from econometricians and psychometricians in that matter. Although the two communities traditionally have separate goals (economists being rather focused on the conditions for estimating causal effects in observational designs, and psychologists rather focused on the quality of theoretical constructs' measurement), they both relate to common statistical concepts (multilevel data, mixed models, value-added, effectiveness, ...) on which this workshop will focus.
