The first executive director of the IEA, T. Neville Postlethwaite (1933-2009), once recounted the story of sending off the first round of assessments and not knowing for months if the assessment booklets had even arrived at their destinations, let alone whether or not the assessment was actually being administered in the 12 countries that initially participated"-- Provided by publisher
