IEA believes in the importance of supporting secondary research by making IEA study materials available for those who seek to contribute to a better understanding of education and to further educational research. We encourage the use of already-available materials as well as new materials that become available with each of our studies’ cycles.
IEA believes in the importance of Open Science as a way to support scientific research for everyone. Therefore, IEA is eager to share study instruments and other study-related documents, as long as these materials are available and the requester provides reasonable details about their use and access. For this reason, it is necessary to formalize approval from IEA by completing the permission request form. Please note that materials that are publicly available on IEA or related ISC websites also require undergoing the permission requests procedure.
Permission can be acquired by using the Permission Request Form, linked below.
Types of available materials that require a permission request:
- Assessment items
- Background/context questionnaires
- Other publication materials
IEA can be reached for questions and comments about permission requests at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that citing publications does not require requesting permission, and IEA data are available open access. Visit IEA's data repository and agree to the terms and conditions for accessing IEA study data.
