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.

Questionnaire Framework

This chapter describes the framework that led the design of the PISA 2009 questionnaires; the aim was to gather policy-relevant background information linked to student achievement from school principals, students and parents. The chapter presents the types and purposes of the information collected at four different levels: the educational system as a whole; the school level; the instructional setting; and the student level. It also puts forward ideas for analysing the policy-relevance of the data collected, such as: investigating effective learning environments in reading; ensuring school effectiveness and management; promoting educational equity and cost effectiveness; and developing systemlevel indicators.
