The National Academy of Education (NAEd) held a two-day workshop to address a fundamental tension faced by the education research community: how to balance the benefits of access to comprehensive (“big”) data with the potential risks to individual privacy and confidentiality.

Workshop Series on Methods and Policy Uses of International Large-Scale Assessments

June 17, 2016 & September 16, 2016
Keck Center of the National Academies
Washington, DC

Although there is widespread recognition that ILSAs can provide useful information, there is debate about what types of comparisons are the most meaningful and what could be done to assure more sound interpretations. To address these issues, in 2015 the National Academy of Education assembled a Steering Committee to examine the future of ILSAs from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The committee held two workshops and will be producing a summary report, to be released in 2017.
