Early intervention in quality education is a way to equalize opportunities, a premise assumed by several countries. As a result, interest has grown in preschool education, which is now an important area of public policy. However, the performance of preschool education centers has received relatively scarce research attention. Consistent with the ab...

We measure performance change for the educational systems of 28 countries which participated in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study in years 2007 and 2011 for eighth grade basic education students. We consider simultaneously variables related to academic achievement and inequality in the discipline of mathematics. From a metho...

This study uses the global non-radial Malmquist index to measure performance change in the educational systems of 29 countries/economies participating in PISA 2003 and 2012 for students at age 15 in the disciplines of mathematics and reading. This methodology is particularly appropriate both for its desirable properties as well as its suitability f...

1.1. Análisis crítico de la regulación El análisis crítico de las regulaciones y políticas de mejora da cuenta que la estructura de los ciclos escolares y las políticas educativas para el mejoramiento escolar, inciden fuertemente en los hitos transicionales que viven los estudiantes a lo largo de la educación media. En primer lugar, la organización...
Article
Value added models have been proposed to analyze different aspects related to school effectiveness on the basis of student growth. There is consensus in the literature about the need to control for socioeconomic status and other contextual variables at student and school level in the estimation of value added, for which the methodologies employed h...

Purpose The correlation between work and life satisfaction varies substantially across studies, suggesting that the strength of the relationship may depend on the studied population and its circumstances. The purpose of this paper is to assess the strength of the relationship in the context of Chile and the moderator effect of self-employment (SE),...

This article examines the subjective antecedents of life satisfaction of workers. Adopting a ‘bottom-up’ perspective, we assessed the unique influence that satisfaction with multiple life domains have on evaluative judgments of overall life satisfaction. Based on a nationwide sample of 530 Chilean workers, we simultaneously tested the effects of se...

The purpose of this study is to inform public policies aimed at improving parental school-choice processes. The study estimates both the utility obtained by parents from different school attributes and the effective utility obtained with the actual school choice made by parents. The difference between both types of utilities provides a panorama on...

We propose a methodology for evaluating educational performance, from a multilevel perspective. We use partial frontier approaches to mitigate the influence of outliers and the curse of dimensionality. Our estimation considers idiosyncratic variables at the school, class, and student levels. Our model is applied to a sample of students in fourth ye...

The present study assesses the performance of 54 participating countries in PISA 2006. It employs efficiency indicators that relate result variables with resource variables used in the production of educational services. Desirable outputs of educational achievement and undesirable outputs of educational inequality are considered jointly as result v...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Existe consenso que la educación tiene una alta prioridad, ya sea por su poder explicativo del diferencial de tasas de crecimiento de un país como por ser elemento necesario para una sociedad con igualdad de oportunidades. Lamentablemente sólo muy pocos países cuentan con sistemas educativos óptimos, y por el contrario, la mayoría de ellos deben su...

This study compare the effect of four scoring methods for the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) on score reliability, concurrent validity, cut points, sensibility, specificity and classifica-tion reliability of the scale. The CES-D was scored using the conventional "ordinal" method, two binary methods ("presence" and "persis...

This study uses data envelopment analysis to analyse the efficiency of educational systems in 31 countries. This type of evaluation is of interest both when formulating a model for analysis and when applying such a model empirically. The efficiency of an educational system must take into account the students' economic and social background, as this...
