Theory and Practice of Using International Large-scale Students Assessments Datasets for National Evidence-Based Policymaking IRN

IRN Start Date: February 1, 2014

This IRN builds on the structure of the Centre for applied epistemology, at the Educational Research Institute (ERI) in Slovenia: a) departments for IEA, OECD and EU studies, b) department for textbook, curricular analyses and theories of knowledge. The structure will be synthesized between two content areas: 1. Theories of knowledge and international large-scale student assessments, 2. Policy-making in education (curricular policies, educational policies).

Theoretical focus: Will be especially devoted to the theoretical conceptualization of link between (applied) epistemology and international large-scale student assessments (ILSA).

Research focus: Will focus on the current practices of national policy making using ILSA data and on finding suitable methodologies for doing so.

Practical focus: Will be devoted on research on the ‘impact’ of international large-scale student assessments on national policymaking in different countries as well as providing methodological guidelines for policy making using the data from these assessments. Abbreviation: ILSA­-PM
