IEA Six-Subject Survey Instruments: Stage 2 Manuals. [Science, Reading Comprehension, and Literature].
International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, Stockholm (Sweden).
In 1965 the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) inaugurated a cross-national survey of achievement in six subjects: Science, Reading Comprehension, Literature, English as a Foreign Language, French as a Foreign Language, and Civic Education. The overall aim of the project was to use international tests in order to relate student achievement and attitudes to instructional, social, and economic factors, and from the results to establish generalizations of value to policy makers worldwide. Contained here are three manuals setting out the basic procedures to be followed by national centers, school coordinators, and test administrators in administering all phases of the Science, Reading Comprehension, and Literature testing. Information concerning these tests can be found in ED 081 639 (Science), ED 084 503 (Reading Comprehension), and ED 085 709 (Literature). (RC)
