The IEA-ETS Research Institute
(IERI) is organizing a three-day workshop on conducting analysis using the international PIAAC database. The general day to day schedule will consist of a mixture of presentations and hands-on practical assignments. The goals of the workshop are to:
- Familiarize participants with the statistical complexities involved in using international large scale assessment databases such as PIAAC
- Familiarize participants with the data structure of this international assessment
- Familiarize participants with software currently available to take into account statistical and data complexities of the PIAAC database
- Prepare the users to take into account the statistical complexities and complex data structure when using the databases with commercially available software.
Participation will be limited to the first 45 registrants. Participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. A list of local hotels, course requirements and final agenda will be sent to you upon receipt of your registration and payment.
This workshop will be followed by the PIAAC International Research Conference. While these are separate events, we strongly encourage participants of the workshop to register for the conference. For more information please visit ETS conferences
