iPIPS Placing early childhood education at the heart of policy making


iPIPS is a unique international study of children starting school which has the potential to fill an important gap.  It will provide policy-relevant information about children starting school and their progress during the first year, helping to contextualise PISA data and helping to answer questions about the progress that children make, around the world.

iPIPS is led by a team from the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring, Durham University, UK.  It is based on an assessment system which has been developed over the last 20 years and has been used with more than two million children in various countries.
