Green at Fifteen?

How 15-Year-Olds Perform in Environmental Science and Geoscience in PISA 2006

The OECD’s PISA 2006 assessment of the science competencies of 15-year-olds offers the first comprehensive and internationally comparative knowledge base of students’ knowledge about the environment and environment-related issues. Green at Fifteen? presents an analysis of this knowledge base, including information on the sources of students’ awareness of environmental science, their attitudes towards the environment and how these attitudes interrelate with their performance in environmental science.

With the intensification of public concern over the environment, many nations are engaged in extensive public debates. 15-year-olds in OECD countries have access to large amounts of information on the environment and its scientific study. Not only schools, but the media and Internet as well, have become rich sources of material from which students can learn and apply their scientific literacy.
