Data collection commences in Ghent

Ghent schools began collecting data on 7 October, and are expected to continue into early 2014. Ghent students, teachers and schools are using the same online instruments as Melbourne, including the international PISA-derived test, but each instrument has been translated to enable respondents to participate in their native language. The Cultural Diversity: Opportunities & Socialisation (CuDOS) research team at Ghent University are supporting each school throughout their participation.
