    Description:

    This Economic Insights article discusses the potential impact of recent school closures on learning and academic performance of school children as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic. To benefit from online resources, students require access to internet-enabled devices that are suitable for learning. The article estimates the percentage of households with children under the age of 18 with access to these learning tools by level of household income, and also discusses the potential impact of receiving no instruction on academic performance based on an earlier Statistics Canada study.

    Description:

    Using data from the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey, this study takes a first look at school mobility among off-reserve First Nations students in grades 1 to 6 and grades 7 to 12. The reason off-reserve First Nations students last moved schools is examined, and comparisons are made between students in grades 1 to 6 and those in grades 7 to 12. Based on the number of schools that a student had attended and the reason provided for the last school move, comparisons are made between off-reserve First Nations students who were non-movers and movers. Three levels of socio-economic characteristics are examined for off-reserve First Nations students including: student characteristics (for example, age, sex, and registered Indian status); family characteristics (for example, income, living arrangements and parental education); and school support characteristics (for example, parental involvement in education) to show differences between non-movers and movers. Finally, school outcomes (for example, grade on last report card, happiness at school, ever repeated a grade) are compared between non-movers and movers to determine if having one “non-regular” progression school move is negatively related to academic success for off-reserve First Nations students.

    Participants in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) were asked to indicate how much time they spent studying or doing homework each week in the three PISA subject areas of language arts, mathematics and science. This article looks at the study habits of female and male 15-year-old students in 2009 and how various approaches to the completion of schoolwork are associated with differences in PISA scores.

    Description:

    In 2009, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) asked the principals of schools that were attended by 15-year-olds to indicate which aspects of their school context hindered instruction and/or student learning within their schools. This article not only identifies the types of hindrances affecting instruction and learning, but also the complexity of managing and maximizing the quality of the secondary school educational experience.

    This article summarizes the results of the Programme for International Student Assessment 2009 for students in minority-language school systems in the seven provinces that reported data for both their English- and French-language school systems (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia). The minority-language student population consists of Anglophone students in Quebec and Francophone students outside of Quebec.

    Description:

    PISA is a collaborative effort among member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and is designed to provide policy-oriented indicators of the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students. PISA data shed light on a range of factors that contribute to successful students, schools and education systems. This report summarises the results from PISA 2009 for students in the minority-language school systems in Canada within the 7 provinces that reported data for both their English and French language school systems (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia). The purpose of the following analyses was to develop a profile of minority-language students in Canada (French outside of Quebec, English in Quebec) and the schools they attend.

    Description:

    RTI International is currently conducting a longitudinal education study. One component of the study involved collecting transcripts and course catalogs from high schools that the sample members attended. Information from the transcripts and course catalogs also needed to be keyed and coded. This presented a challenge because the transcripts and course catalogs were collected from different types of schools, including public, private, and religious schools, from across the nation and they varied widely in both content and format. The challenge called for a sophisticated system that could be used by multiple users simultaneously. RTI developed such a system possessing all the characteristics of a high-end, high-tech, multi-user, multitask, user-friendly and low maintenance cost high school transcript and course catalog keying and coding system. The system is web based and has three major functions: transcript and catalog keying and coding, transcript and catalog keying quality control (keyer-coder end), and transcript and catalog coding QC (management end). Given the complex nature of transcript and catalog keying and coding, the system was designed to be flexible and to have the ability to transport keyed and coded data throughout the system to reduce the keying time, the ability to logically guide users through all the pages that a type of activity required, the ability to display appropriate information to help keying performance, and the ability to track all the keying, coding, and QC activities. Hundreds of catalogs and thousands of transcripts were successfully keyed, coded, and verified using the system. This paper will report on the system needs and design, implementation tips, problems faced and their solutions, and lessons learned.

    Description:

    Do students know the education required to achieve their career objectives? Is this information related to their education pathways? To address these questions, the Youth in Transition Survey (YITS), Cohort A is used to compare high school students' perceptions of the level of education they will require for the job they intend to hold at age 30, with the level required according to professional job analysts at Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). The focus is on students intending to work in a job which requires a university degree, and examine the correlation between the knowledge of educational requirements and subsequent university enrolment. The results suggest that about three out of four students intending to work in a job requiring a university degree are aware of the education they will require. Evidence suggests that knowledge of educational requirements is related to academic performance and socio-economic background. Differences by intended occupation are quite small. Moreover, students who know that a university degree is required are more likely to attend university, even after accounting for differences in academic performance, sex, and socioeconomic background. In fact, the knowledge of educational requirements is as strongly related to university attendance as other well-documented correlates such as sex, academic performance and parental education. Finally, higher university attendance rates are observed when students learn earlier (rather than later), that a university degree is required for their intended job.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 11-522-X19980015034
    Description:

    A model of secondary school progression has been estimated using data from the 1991 School Leavers Survey conducted by Statistics Canada. The data on which the school progression model was based comprised current educational status and responses to retrospective questions on the timing of schooling events. These data were sufficient for approximate reconstruction of educational event histories of each respondent. The school progression model was designed to be included in a larger, continuous time micro-simulation model. Its main features involve estimation -- by age, month of birth and season for both sexes in each province -- of rates of graduation, of dropout, of return and of dropout graduation. Estimation was reinforced with auxiliary 1991 Census and administative data.
