Good Morning,

I am very interested to know how several countries choose
i)  their schools to participate in PIRLS
ii) how they prepare their students to take part in PIRLS

I would be much obliged for your answers.

best regards

I�m afraid you can�t choose to be tested as they follow a random sample design. 

Regarding preparation, if you want to see samples of the test, you can check the last one( 2011)  There won�t be another assessment until 2016.

You can learn more at http://timssandpirls.bc.edu/
