Study Time and Scholarly Achievement in PISA


Authors: Kuehn, Z and Landeras, P

Abstract: We take a dierent look at the PISA 2006 data set considering time input as the main ingredient for scholarly achievement. Across countries, absolute time spent studying is negatively related to scholarly achievement, while a larger fraction of total study time spent in the classroom is associated to better performance. When considering different groups of students, this positive relationship between time input and scholarly achievement breaks down. We find that compensating for less class time or lower socio-economic background by individual study time, is enormously time-costly or even impossible for students in Spain, as well as for students in the three best and the three worst performing OECD countries.
