  • Abstract

    IGLU/PIRLS 2011 is the third cycle of IEA‘s (International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement) students assessment on reading literacy, which is carried out every five years. PIRLS 2011 collects data to provide information on trends on reading literacy achievement of forth-grade students. It covers the areas of reading intention, motivation and comprehension as well as habits and attitudes towards reading. Additional data were collected relating to their educational, familial and political conditions, that influence the provision and use of school learning opportunities. In 2011, PIRLS coincided for the first time with TIMMS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study), which is also an IEA-study. In Germany, both studies were performed with a common sample and the same forth grade students could be assessed in mathematics, science and reading.
