15marAll DayCIES 2020 annual conference “Education beyond the human”


Event Details

Following the cancellation of the onsite CIES conference in Miami due to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), organizers shifted to a virtual meeting space with the goal of providing an engaging and meaningful experience for those who had expected to attend.

CIES 2020 “Education Beyond the Human” has originally envisioned a small virtual conference pilot, which scheduled to open on March 15, 2020. The original virtual conference pilot included paper sessions, with pre-recorded presentations grouped around a particular theme and invited discussants. Virtual Poster Presentations were accompanied by short audio recordings and included a discussion area to engage with the author(s) and each other.

With the great support from the World Bank Russia country office some of our colleagues attended the conference to participate in a poster session and round table discussion. They presented their work in frames of the International Research on Student Achievements.

IRSA is focused on education quality improvement through regular thorough monitoring of student’s achievements in mathematics and determining their relationship with factors of educational environment. For the achievement of this goal researchers created a set of assessment tools and localized them in different countries’ cultural context. The developed toolkit allows not only measuring student’s current academic performance and its correlation with various factors but also predicting future subject achievements. Knowing of what needs to be achieved in order to receive better educational results will allow planning and implementing interventions at the class/school level.
