The International Computer and Information Literacy Study 2013 (ICILS2013) (<a target=""></a>) is the first large-scale international comparative study on students&rsquo; ability to make use of computer and information technology to conduct inquiry, create, communicate and use information safely at home, school and different social and workplace contexts. Including Hong Kong, there were 21 countries and education systems that participated in this international comparative study conducted under the auspices of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA).

The Hong Kong component of the ICILS 2013 study was conducted by the Centre for Information Technology in Education of The University of Hong Kong. About 2,000 grade 8 students from 118 randomly sampled schools in different districts in Hong Kong participated in the performance assessment of computer and information literacy, a test that was designed by the IEA research team with inputs from the research teams of the participating systems.

In addition to the sampled students&rsquo; participation in the performance assessment and background questionnaire, approximately 1,300 teachers who teach grade 8 classes and over 100 principals from the sampled schools also took part in the questionnaire survey.
