Responses to Educational Disruption Survey

Everyone knows covid-19 disrupted education in countless ways. But what we don’t have is cross-national data that clearly measures these disruptions.

That is until now.

The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and UENSCO conducted a joint study called the Responses to Educational Disruption Survey or REDS for short. REDS was developed and implemented quickly across 11 countries. It’s the first survey of its kind. Earlier this year, the first report on the survey was published. That’s what we explore today.

With me are Dirk Hastedt, the Executive Director of IEA, Sabine Meinck, the Co-Head of the Research and Analysis Unit and the Head of the Sampling Unit at the IEA.

The REDS data is open access, so anyone can dive into it. The IEA is holding a REDS data analysis workshop in June.
