Aims and findings of second study in secondary education
Effectiveness of the programmes
Study B consists of a quantitative analysis of the effects of the programmes, using data on students’ progress (from the learning management system, or LMS). We will ask the sample of schools to send their LMS data to Statistics Netherlands (CBS). The data will be anonymised and stored in a secure environment, so it can be linked to the data in the Dutch National Cohort Study on Education (NCO).
Transferring LMS data is a time-consuming process for schools, and requires the right know-how to do it properly. We will therefore provide research assistants to help with this, and will provide funding for 1.5 days of administrative support per school for the transfer of this data. We will also cover any costs charged by Statistics Netherlands.
