O'Dwyer, John; Aksit, Necmi; Sands, Margaret
International Journal of Educational Development, v30 n2 p193-203 Mar 2010
The Eastern Anatolian project extends opportunity and access to quality education. The study examines the selection and learning systems adopted within the framework of gender equity, family background and higher order skills. Performance data on a range of selection measures and the initial programme are analysed. Results show that selection was successful in choosing high achievers and establishing equitable occupational and gender access. Girls out-performed boys in skills-based selection measures, showed greater relative gains in language learning, and evinced better higher order skills, reversing the trend in state examinations. (Contains 7 tables.)
