Sample text

1 shows that school-level factors are expected to directly influence the quality of instruction, time for learning, and opportunity to learn at the classroom level. Their influence on student achievement is mediated by time on task and by opportunities used at the student level. Therefore, school-level factors are categorised within the same conceptual notions of quality, time, and opportunity as the classroom-level factors.

In this context, Creemers (1994) made a distinction between time on task on the one hand and opportunity to learn on the other. Thus, Creemers (1994) developed Carroll’s model of learning by adding to the general concept of opportunity the more specific notion of opportunity to learn. Moreover, in Creemers’ model time and opportunity are discerned both at the classroom level and at the school level. In this way Creemers made a distinction between available, and actually used, time and opportunity.

It was popular because it related individual student characteristics important for learning to characteristics of education important for instruction. In addition, Carroll indicated the factors of time and the quantity and quality of instruction to be important concepts for learning in schools. These were also important characteristics for school effectiveness, as found in earlier effectiveness studies (Creemers, 1994). The concepts of time/opportunity and quality are rather vague, but can be made more concrete by looking at other characteristics of effective instruction related to learning outcomes.
