Contextual Framework

The Contextual Framework guides the development of the contextual questionnaires for MILO in order to address the research questions of the study. It is organised into six themes and each theme draws on evidence from the literature to provide guidance on the types of data that are to be collected through the questionnaires. The contextual questionnaires are designed to support the MILO project goal of identifying the impact of different distance learning mechanisms put in place to remediate the learning disruption generated by COVID-19.

    • Contextual Framework
      • This Contextual Framework identifies and defines the multiple contexts that influence learners’ performance and engagement in the six education systems of this study. Specifically, the framework guided the development of the contextual questionnaires, and informs the interpretation and reporting of the relationship between contextual factors and learner performance, as well as the education policy that shapes this relationship.
    • Contextual Themes
      • The purpose of this paper is to provide an outline of the major themes for the construction of the contextual instruments for the MILO study, and summarize the types of data proposed to be collected as part of the student, school and system level questionnaires.

Testlets Construction

  • Test Booklet and Questionnaire Construction Guidelines
    • These guidelines have been designed to assist the participating National Centres to successfully organise, create and print test instruments (National/Regional test booklet, MILO test booklets, MILO student questionnaire, and MILO school questionnaire)
  • Reading and Mathematics Assessment Blueprint
    • This document provides a detailed assessment blueprint for the COVID-19 MILO assessment instruments. This assessment blueprint describes the learning areas and target population for the MILO project, the domain and constructs assessed, the item types included, the sources of items and a description of how they were selected, and the final MILO test booklet design.
