Early identification of students at risk of school success/failure in the 1st cycle of Basic Education

The educational institutions aim to define specific strategic plans and interventions that intend to promote success and prevent failure, requiring the necessary information to identify the students in need of these types of interventions.

The educational institutions aim to define specific strategic plans and interventions that intend to promote success and prevent failure, requiring the necessary information to identify the students in need of these types of interventions. Unfortunately, throughout the years, the educational system has been resorting exclusively to the feedback that is given by the teachers, which has been proven to be inefficient since the identification of these students has been performed in a late stage of the learning process. Taking this into account, this research aims to contribute a better comprehension of the success and failure phenomena in primary schooling from a longitudinal perspective. In this project, it is intended to identify the factors that better explain school failure. Moreover, it will also be proposed an approach based on Data Mining techniques that aim to facilitate the identification and prioritization of students who are more prone to fail. Thereafter, this identification is followed by the promotion of opportunities to intentionally and prematurely act on these cases, which will promote success and prevent school failure. The final results aim to clearly identify the success and failure profiles, validated at an empirical level and at a conceptual level, and create a support system to the teachers’ and school managers’ decisions.

Zona de Impacto: Let´s talk about students’ evaluation? Are there any advantages to keeping national exams?

In the last two years, because of the covid-19 pandemic, national exams didn’t count for the conclusion of high school, only for access to college. Does it make sense that this turns into a rule from now on? This is analysed and debated in this episode of Zona de Impacto by the researcher and student of NovaSBE Catarina Ângelo and Pedro Freitas and teacher Ana Balcão Reis.

THE CHOICES OF

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
