Effectiveness in Senior Secondary Vocational Education.
van Batenburg, Theo A.; Lokman, Ineke H.
Research was conducted in the Netherlands to determine what variables at the school level contribute to the differences in school effectiveness in the senior secondary vocational education system. Information was gathered through questionnaires answered by a representative sample of 57 of the country's 276 senior vocational schools and through questionnaires and intelligence test results from 4,889 students. Students were asked about their age, motivation, and preceding education. Analyses using a logistic approach showed that some school characteristics have a small effect on the degree to which students pass on to the next school year. These variables include pupil tutoring, the quality of the educational situation, and school size. However, student motivation and intelligence play a larger role in school success than school characteristics. (KC)
