by Amita Chudgar , Thomas F. Luschei & Loris Fagioli June 16, 2014

The objectives of this research note are to: (1) illustrate variability in approaches to capture student Socioeconomic Status (SES) in current cross-national educational literature using Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS); (2) demonstrate that the choices researchers make about SES measures have important consequences for their conclusions about relationships between student performance and school resources; and (3) invite a conversation among researchers using cross-national data (especially TIMSS) that will lead to greater consensus as to how to measure student SES in educational research.
