Goldhammer, Frank; Hahnel, Carolin; Kroehne, Ulf; Zehner, Fabian – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2021
International large-scale assessments such as PISA or PIAAC have started to provide public or scientific use files for log data; that is, events, event-related attributes and timestamps of test-takers' interactions with the assessment system. Log data and the process indicators derived from it can be used for many purposes. However, the intended…

Jerrim, John – Review of Education, 2021
PISA is an influential international study of the achievement of 15-year-olds. It has a high profile across the devolved nations of the UK, with the results having a substantial impact upon education policy.

Hernández-Torrano, Daniel; Courtney, Matthew G. R. – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2021
Research in international large-scale assessment (ILSA) has become an increasingly popular field of study in education. Consequently, interest and debate in the field by practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and the public has grown over the past decades. This study adopts a descriptive bibliometric approach to map modern research on ILSA in…

Kirsch, Irwin; Braun, Henry – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2020
Mounting concerns about the levels and distributions of human capital, as well as how they are associated with outcomes for individuals and societies, have contributed to an increase in the number of national and international surveys. These surveys not only examine skills among school-age and adult populations, they also facilitate evaluation of…

Grotlüschen, Anke; Nienkemper, Barbara; Duncker-Euringer, Caroline – International Review of Education, 2020
Among the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) launched in 2015, the fourth goal (SDG 4) is dedicated to education, and one of the ten targets within that goal specifically addresses adult literacy and numeracy skills. Efforts to reach this target involve monitoring, which in turn involves assessment. The most powerful…

Tout, Dave – International Review of Education, 2020
Historically, numeracy has tended to be forgotten and overlooked in adult education, especially compared to literacy. Yet evidence exists to show that numeracy should be made a priority, and that building the foundational numeracy skills of young people and adults is vital for their well-being in work and life in the 21st century. In the past…

Heilmann, Lisanne – International Review of Education, 2020
International large-scale assessments like the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competences (PIAAC) assess literacy and numeracy proficiency as abstract competences, assuming they are cognitive skills and therefore objectively and universally measurable. However, research into how people's lives are affected by notions of…

Robitzsch, Alexander; Lüdtke, Oliver – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2022
One of the primary goals of international large-scale assessments in education is the comparison of country means in student achievement. This article introduces a framework for discussing differential item functioning (DIF) for such mean comparisons. We compare three different linking methods: concurrent scaling based on full invariance,…

Hu, Anning; Wu, Xiaogang; Li, Dongyu; Chen, Tao – Comparative Education Review, 2022
Cultural reproduction and cultural mobility, two mainstay theories accounting for the role of cultural capital in educational inequality, differ from each other in the way cultural capital is hypothesized to mediate the relationship between family background and educational outcomes (the mediation mechanism) and in the differential returns to…

Zhu, Yuanze – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Science achievement and the factors related to it are frequently discussed in science education community. However, less researchers tend to consider student achievement in other subjects, especially reading and mathematics as included in the "Programme for International Student Assessment" (PISA). This research examined the relationship…
