Promote the use of INVALSI data in scientific research and educational teaching.
The 4th “INVALSI data: a research and educational teaching tool” Seminar will be held in Rome on 29, 30 November and 1st December 2019. The purpose of the Seminar is to enhance utilization/use and potentiality of INVALSI data in educational research.

Interested parties are therefore invited to submit research works based on INVALSI data.
- INVALSI data to improve and evaluate Italian teaching.
- INVALSI data to improve and evaluate Mathematics teaching.
- INVALSI data to improve and evaluate English teaching.

- The impact of individual characteristics on student achievement (gender, socio-economic background, origin, etc).
- Bullying, youthful distress and early school leaving.
- Characteristics and potential of computer based tests.
- The nursery school: first steps towards scholastic success.
- Methodological aspects and policy implications of the value added.

Each abstract should be submitted both in Italian and in English (up to 3000 characters). Please, include 3-6 keywords and a short biography for each author (each biography should be no more than 300 characters).
Type of contributions
Scientific research contributions should be in english (both presentation and slides); educational teaching contributions should be in italian (both presentation and slides).
Guidelines for abstracts' submission
The abstract should summarize the entire work to allow the reader to quickly get an idea of the final paper. For this reason, an abstract should be:
- accurate: it should reflect the purpose and the content of the final paper; do not include information that does not appear in the body of the final paper;
- non-evaluative: report rather than evaluate;
- coherent and legible: language should be clear and concise; use verbs rather than their noun equivalents and the active rather than the passive voice;
- concise: each sentence should be maximally informative, include in the abstract only four or five of the leading concepts, observations or implications; do not include bibliographic references.
The abstract of an empirical study should describe:
- the problem under investigation, possibly in one sentence;
- the participants;
- the essential characteristics of the experimental method;
- the main results.
The abstract of a methodological paper should describe:
- the field of application;
- the essential features of the proposed method;
- the potentials of the proposed method.
