PISA 2006: Science Competencies for Tomorrow's World

PISA 2006: Science Competencies for Tomorrows World presents the results from the most recent PISA survey, which focused on science and also assessed mathematics and reading. It is divided into two volumes.

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.

Volume 2: Data/Données presents the PISA 2006 full data set underlying Volume 1.

Together with the PISA 2000 and PISA 2003 surveys, PISA 2006 completes the first cycle of assessment in the three key subject areas. PISA is now conducting a second cycle of surveys, beginning in 2009 with reading as the major subject and continuing in 2012 (mathematics) and 2015 (science).
