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.

Hide / Show Abstract

While knowledge and scientific understanding of the environment and geoscience are essential, if youths cannot make connections between their cognitive skills and real issues, or if they see the future too optimistically or pessimistically to address issues, then they may not be able to fully capitalise on their academic training in these topics.
