Educational Effects of Alternative Secondary School Tracking Regimes in Germany

  • Andrea M. Mühlenweg

This paper examines educational outcomes of pupils selected to secondary school types by different tracking regimes in a German state: Pupils are alternatively streamed after fourth grade or after sixth grade. Regression results indicate that, estimated on the mean, there are no negative effects of later tracking on educational outcomes in the middle of secondary school. Positive effects are observed for pupils with a less favorable family background. Quantile regressions reveal that effects of later tracking are positive for the lower quantiles but decrease monotonically over the conditional distribution of test scores, turning into negative effects for the upper quantiles.
