This paper studies the impact of different teacher and class characteristics on third gradersâ€™ outcomes. It uses a feature of the French system in which some novice teachers start their jobs before receiving any training. Three categories of teachers are included in the sample: experienced teachers, trained novice teachers and untrained novice teachers. We find that trained and untrained novice teachers are assigned to similar classes, whereas experienced teachers have better students located in better environments. Hence, in order to match similar students and classes, we focus on pupils with novice teachers and discard those with experienced teachers. In addition, we show that the same sample can be used to estimate the causal effect of class size on studentsâ€™ outcomes. Our findings are: (1) teachersâ€™ training substantially improves studentsâ€™ test scores in mathematics; on reading scores, teachersâ€™ training is beneficial only to students in high achieving classes; (2) teachersâ€™ education background has a significant impact since untrained teachers who majored in sciences at university compensate for their lack of training, they have the same effect as trained teachers; (3) the effect of class size is substantial and significant, a smaller class size improves similarly all studentsâ€™ reading test scores within a class and is more beneficial to less achieving students in mathematics; all students in less achieving classes are much more sensitive to class size than students in more able classes.
