Technical Standards for IEA Studies

The primary purpose behind delineating technical standards is to encapsulate the essentials of good practice in the field in which IEA conducts its studies, so as to provide a ready yardstick against which studies conducted under the auspices of IEA may be assessed. Although the standards are primarily criteria against which studies can be evaluated, they will also serve as guidelines for researchers involved in designing and implementing such studies. Studies will be judged in the light of these standards by the IEA General Assembly, perhaps on the recommendation of the IEA Technical Advisory Committee. Studies also will be judged against these standards by interested parties outside the IEA network who wish to make use of the results of the study or to use the products (tests, questionnaires, etc.) developed as part of a study.
