Abstract

In April 1995 the European network for educational research on Assessment, Effectiveness, and Innovation (EU-AEI) was founded. The members of the network are educational research institutes from all EU Member States, while Iceland, Cyprus, and Switzerland are represented as associated members. The mission of the network was at the network�s founding meeting defined and described as follows:
To carry out international comparative research in education in the domain of achievement, assessment, effectiveness and innovation within Europe. This orientation of the network implies that there is a key interest in the collection and analysis of both outcome oriented data at the level of individual students, and educational background conditions at the level of students, teachers, classroom arrangements, curricula, school management and organisation, and system parameters at the regional and national level (including specific educational policies).
Substantive questions that are at the basis of the network's research interests are questions about micro-, meso- and macrolevel conditions that enhance educational performance, and questions about the potential for educational change and innovation.
