TitleStatistical modelling in Education: multilevel models applied to large and complex data - year three
ParticipantsMaria Eugénia Ferrão (Principal Investigator)
SummaryFor the past 30 years multilevel modelling has become the mainstream statistical approach in
educational research, recognizing the fact that institutions differ in terms of their pupils'
achievements. Such statistical models explicitly incorporate the hierarchical structure of the
population under analysis. In this project we carry out both cross-section and longitudinal data
analyses related to students in several levels of education, including higher education, by applying
multilevel models.
