CEEF project: an elementary school teachers large-scale mixed-methods study about their work and difficulties they face

On behalf of the Observatoire national de la qualité scolaire (ONQS), the Institute of Lifelong Learning and Guidance (LLLG) will conduct a mixed-methods study (large-scale survey and workshops) that aims to describe current main difficulties of the teaching profession in elementary schools and to examine the extent to which principles of the 2009 Law have been implemented in schools. The study will closely involve educational actors in the analysis and discussion of the data.

One of the missions of the Observatoire de la qualité scolaire (ONQS) is to evaluate in a systemic way the quality of education in the school system in order to promote the development of school quality in Luxembourg.

The ONQS has retained the LLLG institute's expertise to conduct a mixed-methods study that aims to describe current main difficulties of the teaching profession in elementary schools and to examine the extent to which principles of the 2009 Law (cycles, teachers’ collaboration, formative assessment, differentiated instruction, PDS, etc) have been implemented in the classrooms and schools.

The study will be based on two data collections and analysis phases: (1) a large-scale online survey of teachers in autumn 2021 and (2) workshops with different samples of educational actors (teachers, regional directors, ministry departments, …) in spring 2022 to analyse and discuss the main results of the survey.
