International Civic and Citizenship Education Study 2009

ICCS 2009 investigated student achievement through a test of knowledge and conceptual understanding, as well as student dispositions and attitudes relating to civics and citizenship. Teacher and school questionnaires gathered information about the contexts in which students learn about civics and citizenship, including teaching and classroom management practices, and school governance and climate. Three regional modules for countries in Asia, Europe, and Latin America collected data regarding issues of civic and citizenship education of special interest in these parts of the world.

The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) in Melbourne served as the international study center with the Laboratorio di Pedagogia Sperimentale (LPS) at Roma Tre University, working in close cooperation with the IEA, and national centers of participating countries.

 
 
Target Population

ICCS 2009 assessed students enrolled in the eighth grade. In order to enable a link to CIVED, participating countries that tested a different grade in 1999 assessed the same grade in ICCS 2009 in addition to the internationally defined target grade.

In addition, ICCS draws samples of teachers in each school, with an option for teachers in subjects related to civic and citizenship education.
