Abstract

Large scale assessment of student performance is a regular feature of the international education landscape. The International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS) is a recent attempt with a focus on citizenship knowledge and skills. Student political trust data from ICCS is reported here and a mixture Rasch model is used to identify the heterogeneity in this data. The results indicate the complexity of within country and cross-country estimates of measures of political trust. The problem of relying on a single scale score to represent this complexity is underscored and the implications for citizenship education are discussed.
