  • Abstract

    The IQB-Bildungstrend 2015 / IQB National Assessment Study on Languages 2015 (IQB-BT 2015) ) is a nationwide study commissioned by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder (KMK) in the Federal Republic of Germany. It assessed the language skills of 9th grade students from different school types, covering the subjects German, English, and French. Data were collected using representative samples from the German Länder amounting to a total of more than 37.000 students. Competence values were collected in the domains of listening comprehension, reading comprehension and spelling in German as well as in the domains of listening comprehension and reading comprehension in the students' first foreign language (English or French, respectively). Furthermore, questionnaires were used to gather data on students’ socio-economic, ethnic and familial background.
