Abstract

Dans le present document nous avons recours a l'application de la methode de decomposition de DiNardo, Fortin et Lemieux (DFL, 1996) pour ventiler les differences entre les distributions provinciales des notes au test du Programme international pour le suivi des acquis des eleves (PISA) et pour evaluer la contribution relative de la distribution de la et du temps d'enseignement, des autres caracteristiques de l'ecole et des caracteristiques du milieu familial des eleves aux differences interprovinciales de rendement. La taille de la classe et le temps d'enseignement etant deux variables qui ont une influence importante sur le choix de l'ecole, nous examinons comment les differences interprovinciales de rendement scolaire evolueraient si la distribution de la taille de la classe et du temps d'enseignement observee en Alberta etait celle en vigueur dans les autres provinces. Les resultats varient selon la province et, pour celles ou les ecarts moyens de rendement s'amenuiseraient, les nouvelles conditions n'avantageraient pas tous les eleves.
