Влияние инвестиций в дополнительную подготовку на результаты ЕГЭ

Despite the introduction of the Unified State Examination (the USE) , the main forms of pre-entry coaching to get into university – pre-entry courses and classes with tutors – which existed long before the new system of admission, have not lost their popularity . The introduction of the USE has unified a set of requirements for applicants: in most cases, the selection of applicants is conducted only on the basis of USE scores. As a result, the costs associated with the preparation for enrollment and admission to the university should be reduced. This also applies to investment in pre-entry coaching, as formally such preparation within the university in most cases does not provide those benefits which existed before. This paper assesses the impact of temporary and money investing in training for entry on results of the USE. Estimation of the modified educational production function revealed a positive relationship between investment in pre-entry coaching at courses and the results of the exam, although the return on such investment is low. The effects of school and school performance in a number of cases are higher than the effect of pre-entry coaching. In addition, the factors that influence the probability of attending pre-entry coaching programs are estimated.
