Workshop on procedures for the Rosetta Stone project

The IEA Rosetta Stone project is based on a strategy to measure global progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) for quality in education (4.1) by linking regional assessment results to TIMSS and PIRLS International Benchmarks of Achievement. The project is a collaboration between the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, regional study centers, IEA and participating countries.

Colleagues from IEA, UNESCO and the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center contributed to a recent workshop in Panama  that supported countries participating in the ERCE regional assessment and Rosetta Stone. The overarching goal of the project is to develop a concordance table that translates scores resulting from regional mathematics and reading assessments on the TIMSS and PIRLS scales.
