[en] Aims: Using propensity-score matching, we matched students with similar prior-school
achievement and demographical data who attended either an academic or vocational track
during the first two years of secondary school.
Methodology: In a two-factorial between-subject analysis of variance, we compared
standardised school achievement test scores of propensity-score matched prior high- and
low-achieving students who attended either an academic or vocational track.
Results: Results showed that for the subjects German and French, prior high-achieving
students performed significantly better than prior low-achieving students, and students who
attended the academic track performed significantly better than students who attended the
vocational track. For the subject Mathematics we found a main effect of prior-achievement
level. However, we did not find an interaction between prior-achievement level and tracklevel.
