Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The International Association for the Evaluation (IEA) Civic Education Study tested 14-year-olds in 28 countries, including 17 OECD countries, on their knowledge of civic-related content, their skills in understanding political communication, their concepts and attitudes towards civics, and their participation or practice in this area.

The test was designed to identify and examine the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their role as citizens in democracies, both inside and outside the school.
