Does the "Pupil Enterprise Programme" Influence Grades among Pupils with Special Needs?

This paper asks whether the Pupil Enterprise Programme (PEP) is a suitable working method for improving academic performance among pupils with special needs. Overall, 20% of pupils participate in PEP at some point during lower secondary school. Results from multilevel regression modelling indicate that pupils with special needs who have participated in PEP attain better grades in Written Norwegian and Mathematics than those pupils with special needs who did not participate in PEP. The difference between PEP participants and non-participants in Written English was insignificant. The positive results for Norwegian and Mathematics seem to be related to the organisation and content of PEP. The data are from a study of 1,880 pupils in the 10th Grade.
