A hazard model of the probability of medical school dropout in the United Kingdom by Wiji Arulampalam( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
From individual-level longitudinal data for two entire cohorts of medical students in UK universities, we analyse the probability that an individual student will 'drop out' of medical school prior to the successful completion of their studies. We examine the cohort of students enrolling for a medical degree at the start of the academic years 1985 or 1986. We find evidence that medical student completion is influenced by measures of academic preparedness, sex, and age as well as by the characteristics of the medical school itself. On the basis of our results, we also comment on the construction of institutional performance indicators against the criterion of student dropout
Effects of in-class variation and student rank on the probability of withdrawal : cross-section and time-series analysis for UK University Students by Wiji Arulampalam( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
From individual-level data for nine entire cohorts of undergraduate students in UK universities, we estimate the probability that an individual will drop out of university during their first-year. We examine the 1984-85 to 1992-93 cohorts of students enrolling full-time for a three or four-year course, and focus on the sensitivity of the probability of withdrawal to the individual's prior qualifications relative to those of the other students in their university course. We show not only that weaker students are more likely to withdraw but also that the extent of variation in prior qualifications within the student's university degree course exerts an influence on the individual's probability of withdrawal in a way that varies with the individual's own in-class rank

Am I missing something? The effects of absence from class on student performance by Wiji Arulampalam( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
We exploit a rich administrative panel data-set for cohorts of Economics students at a UK university in order to identify causal effects of class absence on student performance. We utilise the panel properties of the data to control for unobserved heterogeneity across students and hence for endogeneity between absence and academic performance of students stemming from the likely influence of unobserved effort and ability on both absence and performance. Our estimations also exploit features of the data such as the random assignment of students to classes and information on the timetable of classes, which yield potential instruments in our identification strategy. Among other results, we find that there is a causal effect of absence on performance for students: missing class leads to poorer performance. There is evidence from a quantile regression specification that this is particularly true for better-performing students, consistent with our hypothesis that effects of absence on performance are likely to vary with factors such as student ability. -- Randomised experiments ; quantile regression ; selection correction ; panel data ; education ; student performance ; class absence

Educational returns, ability composition and cohort effects : theory and evidence for cohorts of early-career UK graduates ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An increase over time in the proportion of young people obtaining a degree is likely to impact on the relative ability compositions (i) of graduates and non-graduates and (ii) across graduates with different classes of degree award. In a signalling framework, we examine the implications of this on biases across cohorts in estimates of educational returns. In an empirical analysis, we exploit administrative data on whole populations of UK university students for ten graduate cohorts to investigate the extent to which early labour market outcomes vary with class of degree awarded. Consistent with our theoretical model, we find that returns by degree class increased across cohorts during a period of substantial graduate expansion. We also corroborate the empirical findings with evidence from complementary data on graduate sample surveys
The UK poll tax and the declining electoral roll : unintended consequences? by Jeremy Smith( Book )

Different returns to different degrees? : Evidence from the British cohort study 1970 ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Ability bias, skewness and the college wage premium ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Changes in educational participation rates across cohorts are likely to imply changes in the ability-education relationship and thereby to impact on estimated returns to education. We show that skewness in the underlying ability distribution is a key determinant of the impact of graduate expansion on the college wage premium. Calibrating the model against the increased proportion of university students in Britain, we find that changes in the average ability gap between university students and others are likely to have mitigated demand-side forces
