The results contradict the argument by Hanushek and Woessmann (2006), that differences-in-differences estimations capture the full impact of tracking. Such estimations capture the gain in education between the measurements but neglect the gains before the first measurement. In a standard incentive theory framework these gains and their variance differ systematically between tracking and comprehensive systems. In a selective educational system, most students will provide more effort in early education. Signaling considerations enhance this line of argument. As a result, educational tests alone do not reveal the efficiency and distributional aspects of educational policies sufficiently.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:41:15Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
