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.



Quality Assurance

It is essential that users of the PISA data have confidence that the data collected through the PISA survey are fit for use for the intended purposes. To ensure this, the various data collection activities have been undertaken in accordance with strict quality assurance procedures. The quality assurance that provides this confidence in the fitness for use of the PISA 2006 data consists of two components. The first is to carefully develop and document procedures that result in data of the desired quality; the second is to monitor and record the implementation of the documented procedures. Should it happen that the documented procedures are not fully implemented, it is necessary to understand to what extent they were not and the likely implications for the data.
