Explaining Socioeconomic Inequalities In Student Achievement : The Role Of Home And School Factors, Gary Marks, John Cresswell, John Ainley Sep 2012

Explaining Socioeconomic Inequalities In Student Achievement : The Role Of Home And School Factors, Gary Marks, John Cresswell, John Ainley

Dr John Cresswell

This paper examines the extent that material, social, and cultural resources and schools account for the relationship between socioeconomic background and student achievement among 15-year-olds in 30 countries. Generally, cultural factors play a more important role in most countries although in a small minority of countries, material resources have a substantial impact. Most often, social resources have little impact. In many countries, educational differentiation - that is, school tracks and school types, and curriculum tracking within schools - mediates the relationship between socioeconomic background and student achievement. Countries with highly tracked systems tend to show stronger relationships. On average, over 60 percent ...

The Sacred And The Secular In Clay's Quilt, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Jan 2012

The Sacred And The Secular In Clay's Quilt, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

n a telling scene toward the opening of Clay's Quilt (NY: Ballantine, 2001), Silas House has the novel's protagonist, Clay Sizemore, heading up Town Mountain toward the Hilltop Club, the local honkytonk. As he approaches the club, Clay notices that "across the bowl that held the town, another mountain rose up" (52). The most noticeable feature on this opposite mountain is a "marble statue of Jesus with his arms stretched out in front ... so lit up that it could be seen for miles" (52). Importantly, this scene acts as House's foreshadowing of the struggle Clay will endure ...

A Standards-Guided Professional Learning System, Lawrence Ingvarson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz Apr 2010

A Standards-Guided Professional Learning System, Lawrence Ingvarson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

The authors note that teaching is almost alone among the professions in not having profession developed, profession wide standards and a related system of professional learning and certification to assist teachers to attain those standards. The authors argue the case for a standards guided professional learning system (SGPLS) designed to help teachers learn and grow and provide public assurances of the quality of work of those teachers who are able to meet the standards, assist in the development of career paths for teachers and teacher leaders that are based on the demonstration of excellent teaching. They discuss the essential components ...

Estandares Profesionales De Practica Y Su Importancia Para La Ensenaza, Lawrence Ingvarson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz Apr 2010

Estandares Profesionales De Practica Y Su Importancia Para La Ensenaza, Lawrence Ingvarson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

For more than three decades educators and policy makers in Australia have been interested in the development of professional standards for teachers. In recent years teacher associations in Australia have been developing their own standards to gain more influence over quality assurance in their profession. This paper aims to provide a broad overview of teaching standards and their use. It begins with an explanation of the idea of teaching standards, pointing out that standards are both statements about what is valued and tools for measurement. A distinction is drawn between ‘profession-wide’ teaching standards and standards developed by agencies like employers ...

Graduate Course Experience 2006 : The Report Of The Course Experience Questionnaire, Hamish Coates, John Ainley, T Johnston, B Guthrie

Dr John Ainley

This report analyses the course experience perceptions of those students who completed the requirements for a coursework degree from an Australian higher education institution in 2005 and who responded to the 2006 Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ). It is the 14th report in a series that began in 1993 but it may also be considered to be the 5th in a new series of reports on the expanded CEQ because the structure of the questionnaire since 2002 differs considerably from earlier versions. Several further revisions have been incorporated into this report, such as a greater emphasis on results pertaining to postgraduate ...

Analysing Hierarchical Data With Multivariate Outcomes: Beyond Multilevel Regression Models, Siek Khoo Nov 2006

Analysing Hierarchical Data With Multivariate Outcomes: Beyond Multilevel Regression Models, Siek Khoo

Dr Siek Toon Khoo

Multilevel regression models are now well established and widely applied in analyses of hierarchical data – typically to account for variation in only one univariate response variable at level 1. However, many substantive research questions call for more complex models. For the analyses of hierarchical data with multivariate outcomes, multilevel mean and covariance structure modelling in the structural equation modelling framework offers great flexibility and modelling opportunities. This paper describes the basic concepts of two-level mean and covariance structure analysis of hierarchical data, and showcases application examples. The paper focuses on fitting possible models requiring multilevel applications and highlight: (a) the ...
