The International Handbook of Comparative Large-scale Studies in Education: Perspectives, Methods and Findings is published. This is a handbook containing a large body of knowledge about international large-scale studies, including underlying theories, historical and political perspectives, methodology, and findings from studies using large-scale data. LEA member Trude Nilsen edited the handbook together with Agnes Stancel Piatak from the IEA and Jan-Eric Gustafsson from the University of Gothenburg. Several LEA members contributed to the book. A list of chapters in which LEA members were involved can be found underneath.

This study uses 2015 PISA data to examine the impact of a supportive climate using four aspects: teacher support, fairness, feedback, and class discipline. The results accentuate the importance of understanding supportive climates in a broader sense and the pertinence of stronger teacher–student relationships in enhancing educational outcomes.

The study was part of a special issue on leveraging large-scale assessments for effective and equitable school practices. The special issue specifically focused on the Nordic countries.

Why do teachers use technology in classrooms? Which factors may determine whether or not they adopt technology for teaching and learning? What keeps students motivated to use educational technology? These questions have initiated a plethora of research on technology acceptance in education, and the debate about why or why not teachers integrate technology in their teaching or students in their learning is ongoing. This special section tries to shed light on some of the answers and highlights the directions for further research in this area.

This paper presents a meta-analysis of the relation between measures of K-12 students' socioeconomic status (SES) and ICT literacy. Drawing from the data of 32 independent samples, the 75 extracted correlation coefficients were aggregated to an overall correlation of r = 0.21 (95% CI [0.18, 0.24]) through three-level random-effects modeling. This correlation was subject to moderation effects by study, sample, and measurement characteristics.

This meta-analysis examined the gender differences in K-12 students' digital competence (aka ICT literacy). Synthesizing 69 effect sizes obtained from 23 empirical studies resulted in a positive, weak, and significant overall effect in favor of girls, g = +0.13. This effect varied between studies, and several study and sample characteristics explained this variation. For instance, the type of skills assessed and the interactivity of the ICT literacy assessment moderated the overall effect.
