(19 January 2016) The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) announces the new UIS global Learning Assessments Database, an open data source that already contains information on 120 assessments in 54 countries, with more to come.
The database is a free online resource available at this link, which provides standardised information on public examinations and national learning assessments conducted around the world. Users can access the database to search for or browse information on examinations and assessments according to different criteria, such as the subjects assessed or the source of funding. Once users have identified particular examinations or assessments of interest, they can access further details about each one through the associated UIS Catalogue of Learning Assessments, also a free open access resource at this link.
The detailed announcement is here.
