OECD Indicators

image of Education at a Glance 2007
OECD's annual Education at a Glance looks at who participates in education, what is spent on it, how education systems operate and the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes, from comparisons of students’ performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment. New material in this 2007 edition includes data on how socio-economic background affects access to tertiary education, more data on participation in vocational programmes, trend data on graduation rates, trend data on enrolment rates, data on contractual arrangements of teachers, and data on evaluation policies for public schools.  This book includes StatLinks, urls linking to Excel® spreadsheets containing the background data.

Indicator A4 What are students' expectations for education?.

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

Drawing on data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003 survey, this indicator presents the highest level of education that 15-year-old students report they expect to complete. The indicator first provides an overall picture of students’ academic expectations in OECD countries and then examines relationships between expectations for tertiary education (ISCED 5 or 6) and variables such as individual performance levels, gender, socio-economic status and immigrant status, in order to shed light on equity issues.
