    School-sector differences in student performance are often viewed as largely reflecting the intake characteristics of students and having little to do with differences in the provision of teaching and learning between school sectors. The contrary view is that school-sector differences show that non-government schools "add value" to student performance through their delivery of the curriculum.   Managing Performance – International Comparisons critically examines the effects of performance management models in the public sector, and assesses their future evolution. It is an important book for all students and researchers with an interest in management, public administration and public policy.

Because only self-reported GPA ranges from the ACT were available, simple comparative analyses . This paper compares student performance in online courses versus on campus (called here Face-to-Face or F2F) courses. Students and faculty alike often express opinion that students' performance in online courses is less than what they perform in regular classes. Numerous reasons have been cited for .

    With this study, we sought to determine the best individual differences predictors of student performance in a flipped Calculus II course. This course required students to interact with an LMS outside of class by watching videos of course content lectures and doing workshops and quizzes, as well. The objectives were to determine the impact of students’ profile (age, gender, race) and the students’ pre-university knowledge brought to lectures (language, subject choice, whether Accounting was a Grade 12 subject) on academic performance. A quantitative research method was used.
