van der BergReSEP,Department of Economics, University of Stellenbosch19 September 2016Slide2

Has our education system turned the corner?

SACMEQ data almost certainly over-optimistic, thus that offers little evidenceTIMSS 2011 showed some improvement, especially amongst poorer studentsGustafsson found strong improvement in performance of black matriculants against a reference groupThe new TIMSS and PIRLS may provide further evidence of improvementYet Kotzé can find few well-performing poor schoolsSlide3

Research data needs

Assessment of children before they enter school or at school entry, preferably then also tracking them through school.LURITS system (individual tracking of children through school) should function properly and be properly

analysedLink the two major educational management information systems, EMIS (in schools) and HEMIS (in universities)Ask matriculants more background questions when they register for the matric exam, to allow better analysisSlide4
