This study aims at investigating influencing factors of achievement in higher education (1st year of University). The analyses of empirical data collected in French-speaking Belgium show that on average girls outperform boys; the gender gap is not explained by students’ previous career. Besides, interaction effects between gender and parents’ level of education are observed. Gender achievement gaps are larger when parents’ level of education is higher. Moreover, when the father’s level of education is kept under control, the mother’s level of education is not related to boys’ achievement, but is related to girls’ achievement. [less ▲]

The current study focusses on five education systems (Belgium French-speaking, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Sweden) where significant improvement of the reading performance in PISA or a significant decline in equity was observed between 2000 and 2009. Firstly, the changes in education policy are documented for each of the systems; the paper then tries to link the kind of changes in education policy with the trends observed through PISA. [less ▲]

The first goal of this article is to assess, for each country belonging to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the influence of pupils’ sociocultural background on educational aspirations. The second goal is to explore whether, after controlling for educational achievement, the residual influence of sociocultural background is still significant. In addition, the author estimates whether the sociocultural and academic characteristics of school composition have an additional impact on educational aspirations in this group of countries. Finally, they shows that the structural characteristics of school systems moderate the influence of individual characteristics and school composition on educational aspirations. [less ▲]

This study examines academic gender differences in variance and at the extreme tails of score distributions in reading, mathematics and science. Ten databases from IEA and PISA were used to analyse such gender differences in an international perspective from 1995 to 2009. Differences in standard deviation, effect size and variance ratios were computed. The main results may be summarised as follows. The gender differences at the extreme tails of the distribution are often more substantial than the gender differences at the mean, which may suggest the need to rethink education policies for low-achieving boys in reading and for high-achieving girls in mathematics and science. The “greater male variability hypothesis” is confirmed, although our results suggest that this may depend on the test content, the study design and the computed statistics. [less ▲]
