Reference: New Online Tool to Access International Education Data Now Available

From the National Center for Education Statistics:

NCES has released a new Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) International Data Explorer (IDE), along with an updated IDE homepage.

The IDE is an online, interactive tool that allows users to explore international study data and create customized tables, charts, maps and analyses. Users can explore results from TALIS, an international study of teachers, teaching, and learning environments, with the new TALIS IDE. Also, an updated IDE homepage allows users to more easily access data of interest across the international studies.

TALIS was first implemented in 2008 in 24 education systems (the United States did not participate). TALIS was administered again in 2013 in 34 education systems, including the United States.

The TALIS IDE includes data collected in 2008 and 2013 from teachers and principals of lower secondary school (grades 7, 8, and 9 in the United States) for participating countries and education systems. TALIS is part of an effort by the United States and other countries to gain a better understanding of the working conditions of teachers and their principals around the world.

The International Data Explorer is a product of the National Center for Education Statistics at the Institute of Education Sciences, part of the U.S. Department of Education.
