The Snapshots series takes findings from ACER's global education studies that Australian schools, students and teachers participate in, and highlights a single issue of interest to Australian schools and teachers.
These international studies include the IEA’s Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and Progress in Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), and the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), all managed by ACER in Australia. TIMSS and PISA are a component of Australia's National Assessment Program, along with NAPLAN and the national sample assessments in Science Literacy, Civics and Citizenship, and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy.
Further findings from these global education studies are detailed in ACER’s research reports which can found on the TIMSS, PIRLS and PISA websites.
