Attached School Database Project

Overview

The Division of Evidence-based Research, in collaboration with the Secondary School Attached to the Faculty of Education Database Steering Committee (the “DB Steering Committee”), is proceeding with research involving the active use of the database. The goal is to investigate the educational effects at the Attached School. The database stores a digital record of results of each type of test and examination performed and recorded at the Attached School (including from the era of the separate Attached Junior High School and Attached Senior High School). In this DB Project, secondary analyses are made of the data by teachers of the Attached School, as well as researchers of the Faculty of Education and CASEER, to examine the effects of exploratory and active learning performed at the Attached School. Currently underway are also panel surveys, performed collaboratively with the Attached School, of current and former (graduated) students as a means of empirically investigating how their learnings at the Attached School are linked with their lives at university and in society.

Panel Survey of the Attached School students

A panel survey of current Attached School students is performed each academic year (AY), beginning in AY 2016. Its purpose is to investigate whether and how the comprehensive study, one of the characteristics of the Attached School, has effects on the students’ values, perspectives, attitudes toward exploratory learning and citizenship.

Survey of Attached School graduates

A survey of the Attached School graduates was performed under the name, “Survey of studies and employment of the University of Tokyo Attached school graduates.” With the cooperation of the Attached School (Attached Junior High School and Attached Senior High School) graduates, this survey was performed at the end of AY 2017. The purpose of this survey was to clarify how the comprehensive learning experienced by the graduates has impacted their later careers.
