The study examines school effectiveness through Grade 10 performance in Maths, Functional English and Transferable Skills.
Following the Young Lives survey on primary school effectiveness in Vietnam, Young Lives is conducting a survey on secondary school effectiveness in 2016-17. The study examines school effectiveness through multiple outcome measures: Grade 10 students’ performance in Maths, Functional English, and Transferable Skills. Student performance in Maths and Functional English is assessed using repeated measures, which involves the administration of linked cognitive tests at the beginning and the end of Grade 10 (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.
