The Design of the 2016-17 Young Lives School Survey in India

This study will examine school effectiveness through Class 9 performance in Maths, Functional English and Transferable Skills

Abstract

Following the Young Lives primary school survey in India (conducted in 2010-11), Young Lives is conducting a survey on secondary school effectiveness in 2016-17. This study will examine school effectiveness through multiple outcome measures: Class 9 students’ performance in Maths, Functional English, and Transferable Skills. Student performance in Maths and Functional English is being assessed using repeated measures, through the administration of linked cognitive tests at the beginning and the end of Class 9 (Wave 1 and Wave 2 of data collection respectively). This will allow students’ progress over the course of one year of secondary schooling to be considered in relation to student, class, teacher and school factors.

Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty, following the lives of 12,000 children in 4 countries (Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam) over 15 years. Young Lives is funded by the UK Department for International Development.
