Governments in other countries, such as England, commonly use residuals calculated by the Means-on-Means and Multilevel modelling methods to compare the effectiveness of schools in producing quality student outcomes by ranking them and their standard errors in the form of league tables (Rowe, 2004). Studies such as those by Woodhouse and Goldstein (1988), and Aitkin and Longford (1986), have compared several regression models in order to uncover the variability in the ranking of schools using residual estimates.
