16:30 - 17:30 Paul Glewwe (University of Minnesota)
“What Explains Vietnam’s Exceptional Performance in Education Relative to Other Countries? Analysis of the Young Lives Data from Ethiopia, Peru, India and Vietnam."

Vietnam’s strong performance on the 2012 and 2015 PISA assessments has led to interest in what explains the strong academic performance of Vietnamese students. Analysis of the PISA data has not shed much light on this issue. This paper analyses a much richer data set, the Young Lives data for Ethiopia, India (Andhra Pradesh), Peru and Vietnam, to investigate the reasons for the strong academic performance of 15-year-olds in Vietnam. The (preliminary) analysis thus far indicates that the Young Lives data can “explain” most of the gap between Vietnamese and Ethiopian 15-year-olds, part of the gap between Vietnamese and Indian 15-year-olds, but none the gap between Vietnamese and Peruvian 15-year-olds.
