  • Presider Professor Tzu-Ting Yang
  • Speaker Professor Chia-hua Liu
  • Background Professor Liu received his Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Tamkang University. His research interest is applied microeconomics.
  • Abstract The speech mainly examines differences in their subsequent satisfaction with high schools and junior colleges, academic pressure, and performance at school among junior high school students applying to the second multi-channel entrance program who choose different channels to go to high schools and junior colleges.

    The study uses the Taiwan Youth Project (TYP) in 2000, which surveyed 7th grade and 9th grade students who applied to the multi-channel entrance system (the new entrance system) and the joint exam entrance system (the old entrance system) for high schools and junior college respectively. First, the study applies a multinomial logit model (MNLM) to examine the effects of the first basic competence test (BCT) score for junior high school students, the 9th grade’s grades, extracurricular activities, art and talent performance, and family background on the choice among the three channels of entering high schools and junior colleges, which are admission by registration and placement, recommendation and screening-based admission, and application for admission. In addition, the study compares differences in satisfaction with high schools and junior colleges, academic pressure, academic performance, extracurricular activities, and art and talent performance among students who enter high schools and junior colleges via different channels. Finally, the study examines differences in their subsequent satisfaction with high schools and junior colleges and academic pressure between students applying to the new entrance system and students applying to the old entrance system.
