International Snapshots Library

For a quick dive into the results from international assessments, view our ready-made Snapshot charts and tables below.

Interested in making your own? These Snapshots are largely produced using the International Data Explorer (IDE), a publicly available web-based data tool that allows users to produce their own tables, charts, maps, and tests of statistical significance. The IDE currently includes data from the PIRLS, TIMSS, PISA, TALIS, and PIAAC studies, with contextual variables such as student demographics, instructional experiences, and school characteristics, allowing users to explore a variety of questions.
