Measuring student knowledge and skills : a new framework for assessment by Andreas Schleicher( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 278 libraries worldwide
Abstract: Are students well prepared to meet the challenges of the future? Parents, students, the public and those who run education systems need to know whether children are acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge to become tomorrow's citizens and to continue learning throughout life. International indicators can describe the levels of achievement in various countries, to which others might aspire. They can provide direction for schools' instructional efforts and for students' learning as well as insights into curriculum strengths and weaknesses. The 29 Member countries of the OECD, together with other countries, have launched the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) to develop such indicators on a regular basis. PISA aims at assessing how far students approaching the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. A New Framework for Assessment, the first volume in the PISA series, provides the conceptual framework on which the PISA 2000 assessment is based. It defines the domains of reading literacy, mathematics literacy and scientific literacy forming the core of PISA in terms of the content that students need to acquire, the processes that need to be performed, and the contexts in which knowledge and skills are applied. It also describes the methods developed to ensure that the assessment tasks are valid across countries, are strong at measuring relevant skills and are based on authentic life situations

Learning for tomorrow's world : first results from PISA 2003 by Programme for International Student Assessment( Book )
14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 225 libraries worldwide
This report presents the first internationally comparable results to OECD's 2003 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey of the educational performance of 15-year-olds in reading, mathematics, and science in 25 OECD countries. This year, the concentration was on mathematics. Beyond the examination of the relative standing of countries in mathematics, science and reading, the report also looks at a wider range of educational outcomes that include students motivation to learn, their beliefs about themselves, and their learning strategies. Furthermore, it examines how performance varies between the genders and between socio-economic groups, and it provides insights into some of the factors that influence the development of knowledge and skills at home and at school, how these factors interact and what the implications are for policy development. Most importantly, the report sheds light on countries that succeed in achieving high performance standards while, at the same time, providing an equitable distribution of learning opportunities. The report presents a wealth of indicators showing how countries compare in various measures of educational performance and factors that affect that performance.--Publisher summary
The PISA 2003 assessment framework : mathematics, reading, science and problem solving knowledge and skills by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 219 libraries worldwide
Are students well prepared to meet the challenges of the future? Are they able to analyse, reason and communicate their ideas effectively? Do they have the capacity to continue learning throughout life? These are questions that parents, students, and those who run education systems continually ask. The OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) provides some answers to these questions. It assesses the extent to which students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. It presents evidence on student performance in reading, mathematical and scientific literacy as well as their capacity to solve cross-curricular problems

Student engagement at school : a sense of belonging and participation : results from PISA 2000 by Jon Douglas Willms( Book )
12 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 160 libraries worldwide
How widespread is student disaffection with school in different education systems? What policies and practices are most effective in fostering students' sense of belonging and participation in school? These questions are of great concern to educators in many countries, not only because of the interrelationship between student engagement at school and learning outcomes, but also because student engagement represents a valued outcome in itself. The OECD PISA provides not only information on students' literacy skills, but also on their attitudes and values, their social backgrounds, and on important features of the schools they attend
Learners for life : student approaches to learning : results from pisa 2000 by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
15 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 160 libraries worldwide
What are students like as learners as they near the end of compulsory education? The answer matters greatly, not only because those with stronger approaches to learning get better results at school but also because young adults who are able to set learning goals and manage their own learning are much more likely to take up further study and become lifelong learners. This report analyses the results, focusing on students' motivation, self-beliefs and use of various learning strategies. In particular, it looks at those characteristics that together make it more likely that a student will become a confident and self-managed learner

Problem solving for tomorrow's world : first measures of cross-curricular competencies from PISA 2003 by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
All stakeholders - parents, students, those who teach and run education systems as well as the general public - need to be informed on how well their education systems prepare students for life. Knowledge and skills in school subjects such as languages, mathematics and science are an essential foundation for this but a much wider range of competencies is needed for students to be well prepared for the future. Problem-solving skills, i.e. the capacity of students to understand problems situated in novel and cross-curricular settings, to identify relevant information or constraints, to represent possible alternatives or solution paths, to develop solution strategies, and to solve problems and communicate the solutions, are an example of this wider range of competencies. The 2003 assessment of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) included an assessment of students' problem-solving skills, providing for the first time a direct assessment of life competencies that apply across different areas of the school curriculum
Are the new millennium learners making the grade? : technology use and educational performance in PISA by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
Using data from PISA 2006, this book analyzes to what extent investments in technology enhance educational outcomes. One of the most striking findings of this study is that the digital divide in education goes beyond the issue of access to technology. A new second form of digital divide has been identified: the one existing between those who have the right competencies to benefit from computer use, and those who do not. These competencies and skills are closely linked to the economic, cultural and social capital of the student. This finding has important implications for policy and practice. Governments should make an effort to clearly convey the message that computer use matters for the education of young people and do their best to engage teachers and schools in raising the frequency of computer use to a level that becomes relevant. If schools and teachers are really committed to the development of 21st century competencies, such an increase will happen naturally. Only in these circumstances will clear correlations between technology use and educational performance emerge.--Publisher's description
Are students ready for a technology-rich world? : what PISA studies tell us by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 138 libraries worldwide
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has profound implications for education, both because it can facilitate new forms of learning and because it has become important for young people to master ICT in preparation for adult life. But how extensive is access to ICT in schools and informal settings and how is it used by students? Drawing on data from the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), this publication examines: whether access to computers for students is equitable across countries and student groups, how students use ICT and what their attitudes are towards ICT, the relationship between students' access to and use of ICT and their performance in PISA 2003, and the implications for educational policy.--Publisher summary
