The left-hand page explains the significance of the indicator, discusses the main findings, examines key trends and provides readers with a roadmap for finding out more in the OECD education databases and in other OECD education publications. The right-hand page contains clearly presented charts and tables, accompanied by dynamic hyperlinks (StatLinks) that direct readers to the corresponding data in Excel™ format.



Les compétences des élèves en sciences

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

Cet indicateur étudie les compétences en sciences des élèves de 15 ans et repose sur les données de l’enquête PISA 2006, où l’accent est mis sur les sciences. Étant donné l’importance des sciences, des mathématiques et des technologies dans la vie moderne, il est de plus en plus essentiel que les adultes maîtrisent ces disciplines afin d’optimiser leurs perspectives professionnelles et financières et d’occuper pleinement leur place dans la société.
