In a sample of 250 primary schools, Brandsma and Stoel (1987) found about 8% of the variance in language and about 12% of the variance in arithmetic could be connected to differences between schools (when pupil background variables were controlled for). Part of these variances could be explained by some school and class organizational factors. Another study was conducted by van der Hoeven-van Doornum, Voeten, and Jungbluth (1989).
