The development of the PISA context questionnaires

In its Call for Tender for PISA 2006, the PISA Governing Board (PGB) established the main policy issues it sought to address in the third cycle of PISA. In particular, the PGB required PISA 2006 to collect a set of basic demographic data as a core component that replicated key questions from the previous cycles. In addition, PISA 2006 needed to address issues related to important aspects of students’ attitudes regarding science, information about students’ experience with science in and out of school, motivation for, interest in and concern about science, and engagement with science-related activities.
