  • Abstract

    In this study, the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB) - commissioned by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder (KMK) in the Federal Republic of Germany - investigated for the second time the school achievement of 4th-graders measured by the nationwide educational standards for primary education in the subjects of German and mathematics. A comparison with the results of the IQB National Assessment Study 2011 makes it possible to examine the extent to which the competence level of 4th-grade students has changed in the Länder over a period of five years. Approximately 30,000 4th grade students from over 1,500 schools participated in the IQB Trends in Student Achievement 2016. In each of the randomly selected schools, a class was also randomly selected to take part in the test. The data collection period ran from mid-May to mid-July 2016.
