PhD Project

Measuring educational inequality: competing normative foundations

  • Comparing different measures of educational inequality in achievement (e.g., socio-economic gaps, dispersion measures) and of studies based upon these measures
  • Revealing and investigating normative accounts that underlie various inequality measures (e.g., capability approach, human capital)
  • Investigating educational inequality for different cohorts and educational stages (e.g., primary, secondary, further education) by using international data (e.g., PISA, PIAAC, TIMSS)
  • Guiding future research on how to operationalize and measure educational inequalities in educational studies and policy analyses (e.g., using performance standards)
