image of PISA 2009 Assessment Framework

This book presents the theory behind the development of the 2009 PISA survey. The re-worked and expanded framework for reading literacy includes not only the assessment of reading and understanding printed texts, but also an innovative component to assess how well students read, navigate and understand electronic texts. Additionally, this publication provides the basis for measuring mathematical and scientific competencies. Finally, it presents the theory behind the questionnaires used to gather information from students, schools and parents on students’ home backgrounds, students’ approaches to learning and school learning environments.

Annex A2

Electronic reading sample tasks

The electronic reading sample tasks are examples of questions students answered in the PISA 2009 survey to assess their competencies in reading electronic texts. This part of the survey was optional. All electronic sample tasks may be viewed on the website for publicly released items of the PISA electronic reading assessment: http://erasq.acer.edu.au. username: public password: access Note that the images of the electronic reading assessment stimuli are multicoloured. The true colours as presented on the screen are therefore not reflected in this publication.
