Volume III of PISA 2009 results examines 15-year-olds’ motivation, their engagement with reading and their use of effective learning strategies. The book opens with an introduction to PISA and a reader's guide to help user's understand the findings.  Chapter 1 examines how engaging in reading activities and approaching  learning positively relates to reading proficiency. Chapter 2 examines how much students read for enjoyment, what they read, and how much they enjoy reading. Chapter 3 examines the extent to which reading and learning habits relate to performance differences between boys and girls. The final chapter discusses the policy implications of the findings. Annexes provide detailed statistical data and technical information.

Tackling Gender and Socio-Economic Inequalities in Reading

Girls outperform boys in reading in all countries assessed by PISA. This chapter discusses the extent to which reading and learning habits relate to these performance differences between boys and girls, and between socio-economic groups. It then examines whether those habits that are associated with better reading performance could be more widely encouraged among boys and among students from disadvantaged backgrounds to help minimise differences in reading proficiency. The chapter also highlights underachievement among disadvantaged boys.
