HSE Visiting Professor Listed among Most Influential Education Scholars
Martin Carnoy, Academic Supervisor of the HSE International Laboratory for Educational Policy Research and the Vida Jacks Professor of Education at Stanford University, has been ranked fourteenth among North America’s most influential education scholars. He was recognized for his work analysing the results of an international education assessment.
Professor Carnoy, a well-known specialist in the economics of education, was invited to the HSE three years ago to serve as Co-Head of the aforementioned international laboratory, which is engaged in educational policy research. Nowadays Professor Carnoy supervises several HSE research projects, and spends one to two weeks every three months in Moscow; the remainder of the time, he communicates with his colleagues via Skype.
The RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings are released annually by the American weekly newspaper Education Week. The rankings are based on criteria related to publications and citation indexes not only in the academic field, but also in the media and on the Internet. The rankings also evaluate a scholar’s popularity in the North American scientific community, and his or her public influence.
This is the first time Martin Carnoy has been listed among the top 20 scholars. He assumes that his work at the HSE Institute of Education has contributed to this success. The book University Expansion in a Changing Global Economy: Triumph of the BRICs?, written by Carnoy in collaboration with a number of co-authors, including two Russians from the HSE, and Carnoy’s analysis of the results of the international education assessment studies TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and PISA (the Programme for International Student Assessment) have had a big impact in the USA. It was Carnoy who suggested comparing the way the same students participated in TIMSS and PISA. An analysis of the students’ achievements is in progress.
