What can educators do right now to address the potential learning shortfall from COVID-19 school closures in the fall and help students catch up? Here are seven recommendations.
While COVID-19 learning interruptions are unprecedented in modern times, existing research on the impacts of missing school (due to absenteeism, regular summer breaks, and school closures) on learning can inform projections of potential learning loss due to the pandemic. In this study, we produce a series of projections of COVID-19-related learning loss and its potential effect on test scores in the 2020-21 school year based on estimates from prior literature and analyses of typical summer learning patterns of five million students.
The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) together with the Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education (DIPF) and the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB) offer an invitation to a three-day workshop on analyzing log file and process data from international large-scale assessments in education.
