  • PLS Title Small class size has at best a small effect on academic achievement
  • PLS Description Increasing class size is one of the key variables that policy makers can use to control spending on education. But the consensus among many in education research is that smaller classes are effective in improving student achievement which has led to a policy of class size reductions in a number of US states, the UK, and the Netherlands. This policy is disputed by those who argue that the effects of class size reduction are only modest and that there are other more cost-effective strategies for improving educational standards. Despite the important policy and practice implications of the topic, the research literature on the educational effects of class-size differences has not been clear. This review systematically reports findings from relevant studies that measure the effects of class size on academic achievement.
  • Title Small class sizes for improving student achievement in primary and secondary schools
  • Spanish PLS Las clases pequeñas tienen, en el mejor de los casos, un efecto leve en el rendimiento académico y pueden perjudicar a algunos estudiantes
  • Spanish PLS Description Aumentar el tamaño de las clases es una de las variables clave que los formuladores de políticas pueden utilizar para controlar el gasto en educación. Pero existe una opinión generalizada en la investigación sobre educación de que las clases más pequeñas son efectivas para mejorar el rendimiento estudiantil, lo que ha llevado a una política de reducción del tamaño de las clases en varios estados de EE.UU., en el Reino Unido y en Holanda. Esta política es cuestionada por aquellos que argumentan que los efectos de la reducción de tamaño de la clase son apenas modestos, y que existen otras estrategias más rentables para mejorar el nivel educativo. A pesar de las importantes implicancias políticas y prácticas del tema, la literatura de investigación que versa sobre los efectos en la educación de las diferencias en el tamaño de las clases no ha sido clara. Esta revisión informa sistemáticamente acerca de los resultados de estudios relevantes que miden los efectos del tamaño de la clase sobre el rendimiento académico.

  • PLS Title There is insufficient evidence to know whether recovery high schools and collegiate recovery communities are effective
  • PLS Description Based on the results of one study, recovery high schools (RHSs) may reduce high school students’ school absenteeism, marijuana use, and other drug use, and increase abstinence from drugs; but RHSs may be no better or worse than other high schools in improving grades, reducing truancy, or reducing alcohol use. It is unclear whether collegiate recovery communities (CRCs) are effective in promoting academic success and reducing substance use among college students.
