Regional differences in Italian students’ performance: a simulation model

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


This work presents the first results of a research project seeking to build a simulation model able to reproduce the differences ofItalian students’ performance at regional level.A preliminary qualitative cause-and-effect model defines the main variable involved in the inter-generational skill formationprocesses, as well as their interplay with the job market context and the triggering of motivational forces for new skill acquisition.Such model was designed according to a system dynamics perspective, considered suitable for capturing the interrelatedness ofkey variables and for providing useful simulation tools to conduct and communicate future scenario analysis.
