Analyzing International Large Scale Assessment Databases, 21–24 May 2013 in Hamburg, Germany
IEA studies focus on student achievement and the factors related to it. They provide high quality data for evidence-based educational policy and reform.
Currently, there are five ongoing studies in a range of topics: ICILS 2013 (computer and information literacy), TIMSS 2011 (mathematics and science), PIRLS 2011 (reading literacy), ICCS 2009 (civic and citizenship education), and TEDS-M (mathematics teacher education).
ICILS 2013 builds on a tradition of IEA surveys carried out between 1989 and 2006 on ICT use in schools, but features a new computer-based student assessment of computer and information literacy. TIMSS 2011 and PIRLS 2011, which are in their fifth and third cycle, respectively, are part of IEA's regular series of international assessments in mathematics, science, and reading. This cycle of studies allows countries to monitor changes in educational achievement in basic school subjects over time. ICCS 2009 is a study of how young people are prepared to undertake their roles as citizens in 38 countries, and includes novel regional assessment modules for Asia, Europe, and Latin America. TEDS-M is IEA's first study of tertiary education, with a focus on policies and practices in mathematics teacher education.
