The 2022 LESE will offer a short course on the 19th of January 2022 with an introduction to the analysis of educational policies using Large Scale International Assessments (LSIA) (with Stata). This course will be taught by Álvaro Choi (Department of Economics, University of Barcelona).
Description: The development of Large Scale International Assessments (LSIA) has constituted a revolution for policy makers and researchers. The aim of this course is to introduce the use of LSIA, such as PISA, for the analysis of educational policies. The course is aimed at Master's and PhD students, researchers and policy makers with basic statistical skills who are interested in LSIA but have not really used LSIA data. Participants will overview the evolution, applications (and limitations) of LSIA and understand some of the most relevant methodological issues needed to use these databases (morning sessions). Hands-on sessions (afternoon) will give participants the chance to get familiar with the specific Stata commands needed to start performing analyses of their own. Participants should have some basic knowledge of Linear Regression Model and of Stata software.
