  • Abstract

    " The Programme for International Student Assessment enters the third round of surveys with PISA 2006, hereby completing the first survey cycle. As in PISA 2000 and PISA 2003, the domains of reading, mathematics, and science were assessed. In line with the rotating focus, PISA 2006 concentrated on the assessment of scientific subjects. As previously, the study aimed to assess how well fifteen-year-old students are prepared for the demands of the knowledge society and lifelong learning. In Germany, the option of an additional grade-based sample was taken up. As a result, in addition to the internationally standard sample of 15-year-old school students drawn from the entire student body, a further sample comprising two grade 9 classes per school surveyed in the international sample is available. In addition to the domains of reading, mathematics, and science, further data on student attitudes, the school context, demographic features, and information on social, cultural, and family background were collected once more in 2006. As in the years 2000 and 2003, the PISA study 2006 aimed at comparing Germany's outcomes with those of other participating countries (PISA-International; PISA-I) was supplemented by a series of representative surveys at Länder level (PISA-Ergänzung; PISA-E).
