Onderzoeksrapport variatie in schooltijd en onderwijskwaliteit


Ministerie van OCW
In opdracht van het ministerie van OCW heeft het ITS van de Radboud Universiteit – op basis van een internationale literatuurstudie – onderzocht wat de effecten zijn van flexibele/individuele onderwijstijden op de onderwijskwaliteit, i.c. cognitieve en niet-cognitieve effecten bij kinderen. Het accent van het onderzoek lag op evaluatieve studies waarin op wetenschappelijke wijze en volgens gangbare methodologisch standaarden effecten van variaties in onderwijstijd en onderwijskwaliteit waren bepaald.

Tweede Kamer
Het onderzoeksrapport wordt voor de zomervakantie naar de Tweede Kamer verstuurd.
