Tracking and predicting educational outcomes
The outcomes of the
‘Tracking and predicting educational outcomes’ and ‘Strengthening outcomes and
post-school transition pathways’ projects have led to the commencement of a
career guidance and transition project for students who are deaf or hard of
hearing and leaving school. VDEI
will be collaborating with NMIT and VCD on this project.
The study run by The Centre of Excellence at NMIT is finalising the report looking at the factors influencing post school options. We look forward to sharing the results of this study with the sector.
Searching for answers in deaf education – what factors support better outcomes for deaf children in education?
VDEI commissioned the Murdoch Institute to undertake further analysis of data for the third wave of the Children with Hearing Impairment in Victoria Outcome Study (CHIVOS). The results of this study will be available in Term 4 of 2012 through the VDEI.

VDEI and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Centre of Community Child Health are conducting a population based study analysing data from the CHIVOS project (Children with Hearing Impairment in Victoria Outcomes Study).
The study aims to improve understanding around the tracking and predicting of factors influencing educational achievements in children with congenital hearing impairment, which may ultimately assist in influencing professional learning programs and practice, as well as parent education programs.
