Experimental Research in Education: An Appraisal of the Italian Experience

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 21 - 46

Resumen

Abstract

This work provides an assessment of the Italian experimental literature in the field of education. We review 25 RCTs completed between 2009 and 2020, analysing their alignment to the CONSORT guidelines. Our findings show that the scientific reporting is on average of good quality; however, there are areas where a significant improvement is needed. We suggest viable solutions, aimed at improving the robustness of experimental research in sociology, taking advantage from consolidated rigorous praxis developed in other disciplines.

Factorial Survey Experiments in the Sociology of Education. Potentials, Pitfalls, Evaluation

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 47 - 76

Resumen

Abstract

The potentials and pitfalls of factorial survey experiments (FSE) are discussed for empirical tests of theoretical explanations in the sociology of education. The possibilities and limits of FSE are outlined in relation to the internal validity, construct validity, and external validity of the obtained results and illustrated using an example experiment on the decision of university students to study abroad. It is demonstrated that FSE are an enriching complement to laboratory and field experiments, and observational studies.

Discrimination at the Crossroads? Evidence from a Factorial Survey Experiment on Teacher‘s Tracking Decisions

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 77 - 105

Resumen

Abstract

Using a factorial survey experiment, we investigate whether teachers discriminate against lower class and minority children. The vignettes include information on the pupil’s gender, social and ethnic origin, academic potential, motivation, behaviour in class as well as parental educational aspirations. While the discrimination hypotheses are not supported, we find gender-specific effects of challenging behaviour, to the disadvantage of girls. Both the usefulness as well as potential pitfalls of the factorial survey approach are discussed.

Legitimacy of Group-Specific Support for College Access – Results of an Experimental Vignette Study

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 107 - 136

Resumen

Abstract

In an experimental vignette study, the respondents were asked to decide whether college applicants should be credited with a bonus or malus on the admission grade, for example due to their migration background, social origin, or effort. The results show that dimensions of social educational inequality tend to be considered in the direction of compensation. Hence, there is evidence of a certain legitimacy of measures in the sense of positive discrimination in university access.

Do Intensive Guidance Programs Reduce Social Inequality in the Transition to Higher Education? Results of a Field Experiment

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 137 - 164

Resumen

Abstract

This paper examines the effect of an intensive counseling program to promote college access of students who are eligible for college. Using data from an experimental panel study, we examine the average effect on university enrollment directly after high school graduation and the effect heterogeneity by educational background. No positive effect of participation is found. We discuss these results in relation to the potential of reducing inequalities by individual counseling in Germany.

Home Street Home. Experiences of Homelessness in a City in French-Speaking Switzerland

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 165 - 184

Resumen

Abstract

In a city in western Switzerland (as in other cities), homeless people are targeted by three policies: a compassionate policy, specific to social emergency measures; a policy of repression; and, as far as residents are concerned, a traditional welfare policy. Based on accounts by homeless people, the article highlights their logics for using the night emergency system. It also shows how their vulnerabilities are produced by the simultaneous deployment of local, national, and European policies.

Spatial Planning as Public Space: Some Issues of Local Democracy raised by the Extension of the École hôtelière in the Lausanne peri-urban area

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 185 - 214

Resumen

Abstract

Based on a field survey on the conflicts regarding the extension of the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, this text discusses the production of public space. These controversies make possible an understanding of the production process of peri-urban space in terms of residential aspirations and negotiation mechanisms. This investigation allows us to understand the articulation of the two forms of public space – as publicity and as a set of freely accessible places – and the questions of local democracies related to them.

Constructing Vocations. The Promotion of Vocations by Professional Associations

Publicado en línea: 29 Mar 2022
Páginas: 215 - 240

Resumen

Abstract

Current research on the promotion of vocations focuses mainly on best practices of institutionalized vocational guidance as well as on individually constructed images of vocations. In contrast, this article deals with the question, how occupational associations – as collective actors – diffuse vocations and, thus, inscribe them into cultural memory. Based on the analysis of recruiting videos, the article identifies different promotion strategies, and sheds light on different thought patterns and exclusive mechanisms.
