Centre for International Student Assessment
In the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB) three of the top-class institutes in German educational research - namely the School of Education of the Technische Universität München, the Leibniz Institute for Educational Research and Educational Information and the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education - have the aim of conducting their educational research together in the area of large-scale assessments.
A further objective is the scientific promotion of youth in this field. Therefore the ZIB-Akademie 2013 is organized at the DIPF in Frankfurt this year. The ZIB is an affiliated institute of the Technische Universität München, and it is promoted by the German federal government and the federal states.
