About the project
The project uses data from the International large-scale assessments studies focusing on the TALIS (Teaching and learning international survey) study to model how school leadership varies across system- and school-level characteristics. In addition, the project investigates the measurement of school leadership from different perspectives within and across schools.
School leadership as a lever of learning project is a part of the larger OCCAM project. The acronym OCCAM stands for “Outcomes and Causal Inference in International Comparative Assessments” in educational research. The OCCAM is a European Training Network (ETN), which is a sub-call in the Marie Skodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (MSCA ITN) of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework. It is a graduate school for 15 early-stage researchers investigating trends and differences in educational achievement, the determinants of educational outcomes, and changes in educational outcomes from an international perspective.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 765400
