  • Abstract

    ICILS was designed to respond to a question of critical interest today: How well are students prepared for study, work, and life in the digital age? The study measures international differences in students’ computer and information literacy (CIL). This type of literacy refers to students’ ability to use computers to investigate, create, and communicate in order to participate effectively at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community. The study collects a rich array of data from students in the study’s target grade in order to enable investigation of the factors that influence this suite of abilities in these students. This information provides education systems and policymakers with an important data source on the contexts and outcomes of CIL-related education programs.
