  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2005270
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper adopts the decomposition technique of DiNardo, Fortin and Lemieux (DFL, 1996) to decompose provincial differences in the distribution of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) test scores and assesses the relative contribution of provincial differences in the distribution of "class size" and time-in-term, other school factors and student background factors. Class size and time-in-term are both important school choice variables and we examine how provincial achievement differences would change if the Alberta distribution of class size and time-in-term prevailed in the other provinces. Results differ by province, and for provinces where mean achievement gaps would be lower, not all students would benefit.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X20040018730
    Description:

    This paper considers a link-tracing sampling design. It describes the Bayesian approach for the estimation of social network properties and gives an example.

  • Articles and reports: 81-004-X20050038611
    Description:

    This article reports on results from the 2003 Survey of Earned Doctorates, providing information on the labour market plans of graduates, how doctoral candidates fund their graduate studies, how much time was required to complete a doctoral degree as well as basic data on the demographic characteristics of the graduates.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X20050018094
    Description:

    Nested error regression models are frequently used in small-area estimation and related problems. Standard regression model selection criterion, when applied to nested error regression models, may result in inefficient model selection methods. We illustrate this point by examining the performance of the C_P statistic through a Monte Carlo simulation study. The inefficiency of the C_P statistic may, however, be rectified by a suitable transformation of the data.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper examines student-educator ratios and per-capita education expenditures within the context of the presence of a teacher-librarian. The presence of library staff such as teacher-librarians or library technicians is reviewed by province, on a per school and per student basis. In addition, the presence of school libraries in rural and urban schools and public versus private schools is considered.

  • Articles and reports: 81-004-X20050017836
    Description:

    Drawing on data from the Programme for International Student Assessment 2003, this article discusses two sets of factors that affect student achievement in mathematics: the role of student attitudes to, perceptions of, and confidence in mathematics; and the relationship between parental education and occupation and students' math performance.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 89-552-M2005013
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This report documents key aspects of the development of the International Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey (ALL) - its theoretical roots, the domains selected for possible assessment, the approaches taken to assessment in each domain and the criteria that were employed to decide which domains were to be carried in the final design. As conceived, the ALL survey was meant to build on the success of the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) assessments by extending the range of skills assessed and by improving the quality of the assessment methods employed. This report documents several successes including: · the development of a new framework and associated robust measures for problem solving · the development of a powerful numeracy framework and associated robust measures · the specification of frameworks for practical cognition, teamwork and information and communication technology literacy The report also provides insight into those domains where development failed to yield approaches to assessment of sufficient quality, insight that reminds us that scientific advance in this domain is hard won.
