Item description for PISA 2006: Science Competencies for Tomorrow's World: Volume 1 Analysis (Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)) by oecd publishing...

PISA 2006: Science Competencies for Tomorrow's World presents the results from the most recent Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey, which focused on science and also assessed mathematics and reading. It is divided into two volumes: the first offers an analysis of the results, the second contains the underlying data.Volume 1: Analysis gives the most comprehensive international picture of science learning today, exploring not only how well students perform, but also their interests in science and their awareness of the opportunities that scientific competencies bring as well as the environment that schools offer for science learning. It places the performance of students, schools and countries in the context of their social background and identifies important educational policies and practices that are associated with educational success. By showing that some countries succeed in providing both high quality education and equitable learning outcomes, PISA sets ambitious goals for others. Table of contents in English Foreword Chaper 1.
