A qualitative evaluation of the IntoUniversity programme

IntoUniversity is an educational programme, funded by the Sutton Trust, aimed at children and young people who are most at risk of failing to meet their potential to go to university due to economic, social, cultural or linguistic disadvantage. The main aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of IntoUniversity on individual young people. More specifically, the evaluation aimed to take account of whether there had been a generally positive impact on young people and whether their participation in the programme had affected their future educational aspirations.

Analysis of international data on the impact of private schooling - Hyderabad, India

With the introduction of a growing number of private schools in the third world, there is an increasing interest in examining the effects of such schooling systems on pupils from poor families. NFER’s statisticians were commissioned by the E.G. West Centre in the School of Education at the University of Newcastle to analyse an international schooling dataset from Hyderabad in India. This dataset included test scores in English and mathematics, as well as IQ scores and responses to pupil, parent, teacher and school questionnaires, as well as indicators of the type of school attended (state, private recognised or private unrecognised).
