Student Performance in Mathematics, Reading and Science

image of PISA 2012 Results: What Students Know and Can Do (Volume I)

The OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) examines not just what students know in mathematics, reading and science, but what they can do with what they know. This is the first of six volumes that present the results of the 2012 PISA survey, the fifth round of the triennial assessment. It summarises the performance in mathematics, reading and science of students in PISA 2012.



Chapter 3. Measuring Opportunities to Learn Mathematics

This chapter examines whether and how exposure to mathematics content, known as “opportunity to learn”, is associated with student performance. The analysis is based on students’ responses to questions that appeared in the PISA Student Questionnaire on the degree to which they encountered various types of mathematics problems during their schooling, how familiar they were with certain formal mathematics content, and how frequently they had been taught to solve specific mathematics tasks involving formal or applied mathematics.
