PISA 2006 Technical Report

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.


Validation of the Embedded Attitudinal Scales

The development processes that are employed by PISA to ensure the cross-national validity of its scales consist of four steps. First, the construct should have well-established theoretical underpinnings. That is the construct should be underpinned by a body of academic literature and it should be supported by leading theorists and academics working in an area. Within PISA this is ensured through the articulation of the constructs in widely discussed and reviewed assessment frameworks. For the embedded interest and embedded support scales the articulation can be found in the Assessing Scientific, Reading and Mathematical Literacy: A Framework for PISA 2006 (OECD 2006) (also see Chapter 2).
