Abstract [en]

In the context of the quantitative approach to the evaluation of educational units there is an emerging interest in discerning the factors that affect the performance of a school. The data envelopment analysis (DEA) methodology provides an effective agenda for evaluating the efficiency of educational units, such as the secondary schools, in the presence of multiple inputs and outputs. In this paper we evaluate the performance of Mauritian colleges through DEA. The data deal with overall % passes at school certificate and higher school certificate in all secondary colleges for the year 2016. The 141 colleges are bunched on the foundation of factors such as school facilities and school population. The analysis results indicate that efficiency of colleges ranged between 0 and 1 with an average of 0.872(CRS) and 0.909(VRS) using Tobit model. The second stage analysis found that the location, zone, types of colleges, teacher-student ratio, student-class ratio, college status and canteen have significant effect on school’s performance.
