Abstract/Description

There are problems associated with the use of existing
educational performance indicators when comparing fur-
ther education colleges in Scotland. Several approaches
have been suggested to avoid or resolve problems in
comparing performance indicators. This paper reports
the results of a pilot study using hot-deck multiple im-
putation as a method of comparing performance on one
particular course in six colleges. Two different modelling
scenarios are examined and compared. Results from
the two scenarios are consistent, showing that colleges
which perform well using one modelling approach also
perform well in the other.
