The PISA 2006 Technical Report describes the methodology underlying the PISA 2006 survey. It examines additional features related to the implementation of the project at a level of detail that allows researchers to understand and replicate its analyses. The reader will find a wealth of information on the test and sample design, methodologies used to analyse the data, technical features of the project and quality control mechanisms.


Field operations

PISA was implemented in each country by a National Project Manager (NPM) who implemented the procedures prepared by the consortium. Each NPM typically had several assistants, working from a base location that is referred to throughout this report as a national centre (NC). For the school level operations the NPM coordinated activities with school level staff, referred to as school co-ordinators (SCs). Trained test administrators (TAs) administered the PISA assessment in schools.
