Prof. J Tanner
What are the educational effects of
streaming?
Streaming affects social background
and cognitive ability in a school
environment
Effects of streaming on students
education performance over time
There are differences in test scores
between students before streaming
Academic ability is contrary to the
test score of students
Students from high status
background, youre likely to be very
well educated
Introduction of statistical techniques
determine whether improvements in
academic performance track the
allocation of students in different
streams
Most of the difference attributable to
the continuing effects of differences
in measuring cognitive ability
Streaming has effects on level of
attainment of test scores
Differences in race can also make
difference in educational
achievement
Kids in academic stream will
continue to get better and kids in
non-academic stream will get lower
marks over time
If youre in a university education
environment you will be more better
off than you never went to university
People who are better off in UK go to
grammar and academic schools and
kids who are less better off get sent
to trades and professional school
Higher overall achievement scores in
non-stream schools than in streamed
schools
Higher achievement scores for kids in
higher streams, lower scores for kids
in lower streams
Kid in academic streams usually
leave without qualifications
Streaming reinforces the differences
of abilities proven by students
Kids in different streams achieve
different scores
Academic steam surrounded by
peers, teachers and curriculum
Research suggest that kids in low
status streams are hurt more by
experiences than those in high
streams benefit themselves
Canadas educational system is more
flexible and open in its selective
function
