The Untapped Promise of Secondary Data Sets in International and Comparative Education Policy Research
Chudagr, Amita; Luschei, Thomas F.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v24 n113 Nov 2016
The objective of this commentary is to call attention to the feasibility and importance of large-scale, systematic, quantitative analysis in international and comparative education research. We contend that although many existing databases are under- or unutilized in quantitative international-comparative research, these resources present the opportunity for important, policy-relevant descriptive studies. We conclude the commentary with overarching observations about the strengths and limitations of such secondary data-based analysis.
