van der Scheer, Emmelien A.; Bijlsma, Hannah J. E.; Glas, Cees A. W. – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
A Bayesian IRT-model approach was used to investigate the validity and reliability of student perceptions of teaching quality. Furthermore, the student perceptions were compared with ratings of teaching quality by external observers. Grade 4 students (n = 675) filled out a questionnaire that was used to measure their opinions about the lessons of…

Gitomer, Drew H. – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Building on the papers in this special issue, this article uses modern conceptions of validity theory to provide a framework for considering the evaluation of teaching quality. The 3 facets of teaching quality focused on are domain conceptualization, evidence and inferences, and their evaluation. Domain definitions vary in their specificity with…

van Geel, Marieke; Keuning, Trynke; Frèrejean, Jimmy; Dolmans, Diana; van Merriënboer, Jeroen; Visscher, Adrie J. – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Providing differentiated instruction (DI) is considered an important but complex teaching skill which many teachers have not mastered and feel unprepared for. In order to design professional development activities, a thorough description of DI is required. The international literature on assessing teachers' differentiation qualities describes the…

Ruiz-Alfonso, Zuleica; León, Jaime – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between teaching quality and students' harmonious passion, deep strategy to learn, and epistemic curiosity in mathematics in 1,003 high school students. Data were analyzed using multilevel structural equation modeling, and results showed support for the hypotheses tested. First, we found…

Dockx, Jonas; De Fraine, Bieke – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Most studies on the effects of tracks during secondary education focus on specific short-term academic performance indicators. This study compared the effects of tracks on long-term unemployment from 1995 to 2015, using a Flemish longitudinal cohort study (4,333 students in 54 schools). Tracks in Flanders have a hierarchy in mean academic ability.…

Muñoz-Chereau, Bernardita – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Despite the systematic recognition of large gender gaps in favour of boys in mathematics performance in Chile, the role of schools in explaining this gap has been comparatively underresearched. This paper analyses a longitudinal dataset to explore within- and between-school variation of Chilean primary schools in promoting attainment and progress…

Vanwynsberghe, Griet; Vanlaar, Gudrun; Van Damme, Jan; De Fraine, Bieke – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
The purpose of this study was to conduct a direct replication of the study of Bressoux and Bianco of 2004 regarding long-term effects of teachers in primary education on language and mathematics achievement of students. They found a short-term effect of the teacher in the same grade, but they did not find a long-term effect of the teacher of the…

Baum, Donald R.; Riley, Isaac – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
This paper estimates the relative effectiveness of private and public primary schools in Kenya using data from 4,433 Grade 6 schoolchildren. Using ordinary least squares as a baseline model, we use the proportion of private schools in a district as an instrument in a Heckman two-stage correction framework, as well as propensity score matching…

Keilow, Maria; Holm, Anders; Friis-Hansen, Mette; Kristensen, Rune Müller – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
A main objective of classroom management (CM) is to raise students' attention to their daily academic work by creating a classroom environment that supports academic and socioemotional learning. While studies have addressed CM effects on classroom-level behaviour or students' academic outcomes, students' attention skills been largely overlooked.…

Hübner, Nicolas; Wagner, Wolfgang; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
In recent decades, several countries have made an effort to increase the enrollment rates and performance of students in science and mathematics by means of mandatory, rigorous course work, which is often referred to as curricular intensification (CI). However, there is a lack of research on intended and unintended effects of CI reforms on…

Taut, Sandy; Jiménez, Daniela; Puente-Duran, Sofia; Palacios, Diego; Godoy, Maria Inés; Manzi, Jorge – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
An important challenge in evaluating the quality of teaching is to arrive at valid distinctions between teachers, particularly in the middle of the performance distribution. This study addressed this issue for the Chilean national teacher evaluation system. Mathematics teachers (N = 51) from the 2 middle adjacent performance categories, and their…

Kyriakides, Leonidas; Creemers, Bert P. M.; Charalambous, Evi – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
This paper argues that research on differential teacher and school effectiveness can be used to explore the relation between quality and equity in education. The results of secondary analyses of 2 studies concerned with effectiveness in different phases of schooling (pre-primary and primary education) are presented. These secondary analyses reveal…
