The Laboratory of International Assessment Studies holds at least one international symposium per year. These offer participants the opportunity to engage with scholars, testing agencies, international organisations and the users of data to engage in in-depth conversations on the politics, practices and potentials of International Large-Scale Assessments (ILSAs).  These events are supported by funding agencies and the host universities.
