PIRLS National Research Coordinators meeting in Belgrade

Posted on March 13, 2020

Dr Surette van Staden attended the 4th PIRLS National Research Coordinators meeting in Belgrade from 1-6 March 2020. The aim of the meeting was to conduct scoring training for the constructed response test items that will be used in the PIRLS 2021 field test which is taking place between 1 and 15 March across almost 60 countries worldwide. The field test ultimately determines which reading passages will be included in the PIRLS 2021 main study. South Africa has been taking part in this international study on reading literacy since 2006 and the CEA has been the national study centre for this important study in 2006, 2011, 2016, and now the 2021 cycle.
