W celu oszacowania związku między osiągnięciami szkolnymi a względnym i bezwzględnym wiekiem uczniów poddano analizie dane 101 519 średnio dziesięcioletnich uczniów z 5585 oddziałów 25 krajów Europy biorących udział w międzynarodowym pomiarze osiągnięć szkolnych IEA TIMSS 2011. W hierarchicznej analizie regresji zmienną zależną były osiągnięcia w matematyce i przyrodoznawstwie, a zmiennymi niezależnymi – względny wiek ucznia w oddziale klasowym i średni wiek oddziału. Efekt względnego wieku okazał się silniejszy niż w badaniach ignorujących podział uczniów na oddziały, mimo że najstarsi i najmłodsi w oddziale urodzili się w różnych porach roku. Efekt względnego wieku zależał od średniej wieku w oddziale: w oddziałach najmłodszych był najsilniejszy, a w najstarszych – nieodróżnialny od zera. Średnia osiągnięć (zwłaszcza w przyrodoznawstwie) była wyższa w oddziałach starszych niż w młodszych.

The study investigated the relationships between school achievement and pupil age at entry into first grade and age relative to the class. Data from 101 519 grade 4 pupils were selected from TIMSS 2011 achievement data in mathematics and science, collected from national samples of 25 European countries. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that the effect of class relative age was greater than the effect of grade relative age and it was significantly higher in younger than older classes. Average achievement (especially in science) was better in older classes.
