Dear Rasch colleagues,
Anyone interested in a little collaboration?
I am interested in trying to interpolate entrance cut-offs for
teacher-education programs in a number of countries by inferring from
the PISA achievement scores.
If we take a few countries with PISA results as exemplars - Norway,
HK, Australia, UK, USA (say) and we have some evidence for how deep a
slice universtites accept off the top of the achievement profile
(say, HK accepts c.15%, Australia much more etc) some broad
inferences might be drawn.
Most countries in which I've work have teacher ed programs as having
near the lowest cut-offs for university entrance - hopefully, that's
not the case for all...
So if you have some knowledge about university entrance requirements
for teacher education in an OECD-PISA assessed country, I'd be
pleased to hear from you off-list.
I imagine that a few others on the list would like to read any
general advice / warnings that colleagues might have to offer.
with collegial thanks in advance,
