Many important questions in education require analysing large and complex datasets including measures of environmental factors, cognitive skills, and educational achievement. We have access to several such datasets: The Eden cohort (N=400 to 1400), the DEPP 2007 panel (N=35 000), as well as more recent data from the  national evaluations in 1st and 2nd grade (N=800 000). Projects may bear on the following questions, among others:

  • What are the early predictors of reading and math ability? to what extent are they mediated by early cognitive skills? to what extent do they differ between boys and girls?
  • What are the effects of grade repetition on subsequent achievement? In a context where repetition generally has a mean negative effect, can one identify criteria that may allow one to identify those students who are most likely to benefit from repetition? 
  • What are the early 1st grade predictors of subsequent reading acquisition?

Student profile: data science, statistics, econometrics.
