Welcome to the Irish website for the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS).
This site contains information about the first cycle of TALIS in Ireland which took place in Spring 2008. A further cycle of TALIS will take place in 2013. Ireland will not participate in the 2013 survey.
Results of TALIS 2008 from an Irish perspective are outlined in two reports.
- The summary report was released to coincide with the launch of the international report in June 2009.
- The in-depth national report contains detailed analyses of the Irish data. It was released in December 2009.
International reporting on TALIS 2008 consisted of:
- The main international report describing the findings of TALIS across all participating countries.
- The TALIS 2008 Technical Report
- A thematic report on teachers’ professional development (European Commission)
The TALIS database is available for use by researchers.
