International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA)
IEA and the University of Pretoria in South Africa invite you to participate in the 6th IEA International Research Conference (IRC-2015). The conference will be held on 24–26 June 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa, and will be preceded by training workshops on secondary data analysis on 22–23 June 2015. We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town!
The IEA IRC-2015 will provide an international forum for all those working with IEA study data to present their findings and exchange views on critical educational research issues in a comparative and global context. Researchers will have the opportunity to engage in creative dialogue about their secondary analysis findings, as well as to consider the emerging implications of their research for the development and methodology of large-scale assessment and current debates in education policy and practice. In conjunction with the conference, the IEA DPC will conduct a series of two-day training workshops on the use of large-scale assessment data.
