Prusinski, Ellen; Hastedt, Dirk; Dohr, Sandra – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2019
In TIMSS 2015, while two-thirds of students in grade 4 reported feeling very safe at school, by grade 8, less than half of the students surveyed reported feeling a high level of safety. Overall, girls were more likely to report feeling safe than boys. For both genders, feeling safe at school seemed to be positively related to academic achievement…

Stacey, Oliver; De Lazzari, Giulia; Grayson, Hilary; Griffin, Hazel; Jones, Emily; Taylor, Amanda; Thomas, David – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2018
Globalization is a powerful force with far reaching impacts on education and education policy. The growth of large scale international surveys of student achievement and the increasing role played by intergovernmental agencies in education means that the influence that globalization exerts on education is likely to increase even further in the…

Rožman, Mojca; Klieme, Eckhard – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2017
The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement's (IEA's) Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) can reveal a great deal about national teaching cultures and policies. Changes in instructional practices over more than a decade may be studied from a cross-cultural perspective. Using teacher and…

Burroughs, Nathan; Chudgar, Amita – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2017
Does teacher quality differ within and between countries, and how are measures of teacher quality related to instructional alignment and instructional time in mathematics? Fourth-grade classroom data from the IEA's Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2015 revealed that although measures of teacher quality were only weakly related to…

Chavatzia, Theophania; Engel, Laura; Hastedt, Dirk – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2016
Girls and women, especially the most vulnerable, are more likely to be excluded from education than their male counterparts. Exclusion and gender disparities in access to and performance in education are also observed among immigrant children, with immigrant girls often being the most disadvantaged. Data from the International Association for the…

Clavel, Jose G.; Crespo, Francisco Javier G.; Méndez, Ildefonso – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2016
The different strategies and methodologies used by teachers in their day-to-day activity may have an impact on the academic performance of their students. Indexes constructed to summarize how teachers address different teaching tasks can be used to quantify the teaching activities' associations with academic results. In the IEA's Trends in…

Nilsen, Trude; Blömeke, Sigrid; Hansen, Kajsa Yang; Gustafsson, Jan-Eric – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2016
In most countries, students' socioeconomic status (SES) is strongly related to their educational achievement: the higher a student's SES, the higher his or her achievement scores, and vice versa. This lack of equity in student outcomes is of great concern to policy makers because educational achievement should not depend on family background. This…

Nilsen, Trude, Ed.; Gustafsson, Jan-Eric, Ed. – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2016
This volume offers insights from modeling relations between teacher quality, instructional quality, and student outcomes in mathematics across countries. The relations explored take the educational context, such as school climate, into account. The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement's Trends in Mathematics and…

Sandoval-Hernández, Andrés; Jaschinski, Katrin; Fraser, Pablo; Ikoma, Sakiko – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2015
There is general agreement that teacher quality provides an added value to effective education; hence, in recent years, organizations such as IEA, UNESCO, and OECD, as well as governments around the world, have shown an increased interest in areas related to teachers and teacher policy. Previous research has shown that teacher experience plays an…

Plucker, Jonathan A. – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2015
Every country strives for its students to have advanced achievement in some way, shape, or form. But too often, competence is a higher policy priority than excellence, and shrinking minimum competency gaps is a higher priority than closing excellence gaps. In this brief, educational excellence is defined as the percent of students who meet or…

Mullis, Ina V. S., Ed.; Martin, Michael O., Ed. – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2014
It is critical for countries to ensure that capable secondary school students receive further preparation in advanced mathematics and science, so that they are ready to enter challenging university-level studies that prepare them for careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. This group of students will become the…
