UCL Institute of Education (link Map)
20 Bedford Way | London | WC1H 0AL | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

This two-day course aims to develop a systematic understanding, and a critical awareness, of current issues surrounding international comparisons.

The course teaches students how to download and analyse complex quantitative cross-national datasets such as PISA, PIRLS and TIMSS and will cover topics such as the use of Balanced Repeated Replication (BRR) weights, the estimation of regression models using complex databases, and the development and running of programmes in STATA to efficiently conduct cross-national analyses. An understanding of basic statistics (mean, median, correlation, bivariate OLS regression, statistical inference, confidence intervals) is required.
