OUCEA undertakes quantitative studies in two main research areas

Children Learning Group

Equity and educational achievement

Equity and educational achievement – The Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE)

Doubly latent multi-level modelling

Value adding in diverse educational contexts: substantive-methodological synergies that address complex issues with sophisticated methodology
