Isa Steinmann


Isa Steinmann is an Associate Professor at the Department of Primary and Secondary Teacher Education (GFU) at Oslo Metropolitan University. One strand of her research focuses on determining how education systems and schools affect student achievement and educational inequality outcomes. In this field, she enjoys applying methods that aim for causal inference from large-scale assessment data. Another strand of her research interests concerns how properties of international large-scale assessments are linked to their results and interact with the respondents.
