ICCS 2016 will produce a rich set of reports and a database for secondary analysis.
The following reports are planned to be released:
- The Assessment Framework (in 2016) including the conceptual underpinnings of the study.
- An International Report (release: 7 Nov 2017) including results derived using the international core instruments and be similar comparable to the extended ICCS 2009 International Report - Civic knowledge, attitudes, and engagement of lower-secondary students in 38 countries.
- An European Report (release: 7 Nov 2017) including results derived from the European student questionnaire.
- A Latin-American Report (in spring 2018) will mainly describe results from the Latin American questionnaire.
- A Technical Report (in 2018) containing a description of details on instrument development, sampling, data collection procedures, weighting, data management, scaling as well as analysis and reporting. As an example, see the ICCS 2009 Technical Report.
- An Encyclopedia (in 2018) containing separate country chapters describing the background and implementation of civic and citizenship education in each country. As an example, see the ICCS 2009 Encyclopedia - Approaches to civic and citizenship education around the world.
Regional reports including results derived from the data collected by the respective components will be published either in conjunction or shortly after the release of the international report on. For 2009 examples, see:
ICCS 2009 European Report - Civic knowledge, attitudes, and engagement among lower-secondary students in 24 European countries
ICCS 2009 Latin American Report - Civic knowledge and attitudes among lower-secondary students in six Latin American countries
ICCS 2009 Asian Report - Civic knowledge and attitudes among lower-secondary students in five Asian countries
In order to enable and foster secondary analysis of the ICCS 2016 data, an international database (including student, teacher and school-level data) and, where appropriate, regional database(s) will be made available to the general public via the IEA. Along with this, a User Guide with supplements will detail technical information and initial guidance for analysis.
National centers will be encouraged to make their national reports available through the ICCS 2016 website.
