Our Committees

IEA committees

The international committees of the IEA bring together long-standing member representatives and experts in educational assessment. They serve in a variety of capacities at the level of association policy, study implementation, and reporting.

The IEA committees include the Standing Committee, Technical Executive Group (TEG), and Publications and Editorial Committee (PEC). TEG is consulted on all technical aspects of study implementation, from survey design and instrument construction, to sampling and statistical analysis. The work of the committee involves close cooperation with the international study directors and other study officers. PEC provides expert review and guidance to ensure the high quality of IEA publications. Members of PEC have considerable experience with educational assessment and IEA studies, and are involved at all stages of the publication process.

IEA Standing Committee

This committee consists of the IEA chair and six General Assembly representatives (elected for a three-year term). The committee serves as a board of directors for both IEA and the IEA Secretariat.

The IEA Standing Committee meets twice a year under the direction of the IEA chair to review IEA policy and project developments. Between General Assembly meetings, the committee serves as the IEA decision-making authority, and works with the IEA chair and executive director to implement General Assembly resolutions. The committee is also responsible for recommending committee members and new studies to the General Assembly.
