Background and Funding
Several longitudinal studies about school-to-work transition exist in Switzerland and other countries. However, there are no school-based longitudinal studies that analyze educational pathways from primary school to dual-track VET and tertiary education or work. The study «Effects of Tracking» (German: Wirkungen der Selektion, WiSel III) continues earlier research on transition from primary school to secondary school (WiSel I and WiSel II), so educational pathways from primary school until five years after graduation from secondary school can be analyzed.
WiSel III will be conducted from 2020 to 2024 and is funded by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI).
