ICCS 2022 International Report and Results Now Available Online

IEA, together with ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) and LUMSA (Libera Università Maria SS. Assunta) University are pleased to announce that the ICCS 2022 International Report is now available online. They were released in a launch event on 28 November.

We would like to congratulate participating countries for this major achievement and to thank all who participated in this cycle of ICCS, as well as all the partners and colleagues involved in making the study a success.

ICCS 2022 studied civic and citizenship education in 22 countries and two states in a 23rd country. Overall, about 82,000 lower-secondary school students from about 3,400 schools in those countries participated along with about 40,000 teachers in those schools.

International key findings include:

  • Civic knowledge did not increase across countries that participated in 2016 and 2022.
  • Female students demonstrated higher civic knowledge than male students.
  • Students from homes with a higher socio-economic status demonstrated higher average civic knowledge than students with a lower socio-economic background.
  • Civic knowledge tended to be positively associated with a broad range of attitudes and engagement indicators.

The ICCS 2022 European Report, International Database, and User Guide will be released on 22 February 2024. We look forward to sharing more about this release soon.
