IRC is an international forum for researchers working with IEA data to exchange ideas and information on critical educational issues. The conference takes place every two years and is hosted by IEA partner institutions. The conference provides an important opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss IEA studies and to learn from secondary analyses of published results.

The 9th IEA International Research Conference (IRC) was dedicated to the theme “Researching Education: Trends and Changes”. Keynote speakers were Dr. Rabbaa Al Sumaiti, Assistant Undersecretary, UAE Ministry of Education and Dr. Matthias von Davier, Executive Director, International Study Center Boston College, USA.

The conference provided the opportunity to meet colleagues and friends, engage in interesting and fruitful discussions and advance explorations and understanding of educational attainment in its context, the roles and needs of education stakeholders, and options for improved education globally.

Each session included several presentations organized around themes related to one or more of the IEA studies (such as ICCS, ICILS, PIRLS, TIMSS), methodology and analysis in large-scale assessment, learning and teaching practice in international education, using IEA data for evaluation or development at national and regional levels, and the policy implications of research.
