ICCS 2016

 

The IEA International Civic and Citizenship Study (ICCS) is an on-going, comparative research program of the Inter­national Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). It investigates the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their roles as citizens. ICCS reports on students’ knowledge and understanding of concepts and issues related to civics and citizenship, as well as their value beliefs, at­titudes, and behaviors.

 

In addition, ICCS collects and analyzes a rich array of contextual data from policy makers, teachers, school principals, and the students themselves about the organi­zation and content of civic and citizenship education in the curriculum, teacher qualifications and experiences, school environment and climate, and home and com­munity support.

 

The upcoming cycle of the program, ICCS 2016, builds on three studies in this area conducted by IEA in 9 countries in 1971, in 28 countries in 1999 (CIVED), and 38 countries in 2009 (ICCS 2009).
