  • Abstract

    The national assessment study in primary schools 2011 (IQB Ländervergleich 2011 Primarstufe) is a nationwide large-scale assessment commissioned by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder (KMK) in the Federal Republic of Germany. The study was designed to assess students’ proficiencies and to evaluate to which extent they meet educational standards in the German Länder. More than 27,000 grade 4 students participated in the study. They completed standardized achievement tests in German reading and listening comprehension as well as orthography. The latter was assessed within a partial sample of 4,800 students. Students were also tested in mathematics with items covering five central topics of mathematics proficiency (numbers and operations, geometry and orientation, patterns and structures, sizes and measurements as well as data, frequency and probability). In addition to data on students’ achievement, questionnaires given to students, parents, teachers and principals were considered to assess students’ socio-cultural, ethnic and familial background as well as aspects of their learning environment in schools.
