For more than 60 years, IEA has been a leading figure in the field of comparative studies of education. Our activities cover all aspects of educational research.
Current international IEA studies include TIMSS, PIRLS, ICCS, and ICILS. We also work closely with partner organizations to implement both international comparative studies and national studies within Germany.
