International perspectives of education: How to increase student's expectations for success?

Fundació Jaume Bofill invites you to the international presentation of the OECD report Grade Expectations: How Marks and Education Policies Shape Students' Ambitions that will be held on December 3rd, 2012 at 18.00 h, in Cercle d'Economia of Barcelona (298 Provença). Why do girls hold better expectations than boys? Why does the socio-economic level end up influencing the expectations of students with the same educational performance? What can teachers do to use marks in an effective way? How do the teachers' expectations influence the academic success and failure? How do these expectations determine students' educational careers? Is it important to ensure that students form realistic expectations? Do students who expect to complete a university degree show significantly better performance in maths and reading? In many countries expectations to graduate from university do match students' performance or their education? What can school systems do? Speakers: Guillermo Montt, educative policies analyst of the Directorate for Education of OECD and coordinator of the hereby presented report: Grade Expectations: How Marks and Education Policies Shape Students%u2019 Ambitions. Aina Tarabini, professor of educational sociology at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Joan Mateo Andrés, president of the Evaluation Council of the Education System of Catalonia.
