IRIS (Instruments for Research Into Second Languages)

IRIS is a collection of instruments, materials, stimuli, and data coding and analysis tools used for research into second languages, including second and foreign language learning, multilingualism, language education, language use and processing. Materials are freely accessible and searchable, easy to upload (for contributions) and download (for use).

Wherever possible, each resource within our Resource Portal will be linked to any original research materials held on IRIS, such as questionnaires about intended uptake at GCSE, tests of vocabulary, grammar and phonics, and teaching activities.

IRIS is funded by The British Academy.
