This issue showcases innovative research and development in the area of log-file and process data with a focus in international large-scale assessments, including the latest methodological and theoretical approaches, and critical ethical considerations. Papers were inspired by a symposium held in Washington DC in December 2018, and a subsequent workshop and conference held in Dublin in May 2019, tackling the theme of “Opportunity versus Challenge: Exploring Usage of Log-File and Process Data in International Large-Scale Assessments”. The resulting collection of papers provides a shared understanding of the importance of log-file and process data in contemporary large-scale assessments, establishing priorities to guide future research in this rapidly evolving field.
