Project of month “Opportunities to learn Spanish and Mathematics: multilevel analysis applied to a sample of high school students in first and second grade." In order to propose a model explaining the importance of learning opportunities (ODAS) in the academic performance of high school students in Baja California, in the subjects of Spanish and Mathematics, Dr. Juan Carlos Rodriguez Macias presented the results of a study involving a sample of 21,650 students enrolled in 88 schools of the state. For data collection was necessary to apply a set of questionnaires, scales and inventories developed by the UEE in 2010, which allow to explore the factors associated with educational attainment that involves both personal variables, student's home and school, as variables related to the learning opportunities provided by the principal and the teacher. From the analysis of the variables considered in this study, Dr. Rodriguez Macias identified those variables that explain better the educational outcomes of students, being the student's educational expectations, socioeconomic status and school motivation, among others, those explaining better the achievement of students in Spanish and Math.
