  • Abstract

    The fifth survey of PISA in 2012 in Germany was carried out by a working group at the Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB e.V.). PISA aims to measure how well students at age 15 are prepared to meet the challenges of today's knowledge societies and lifelong learning. Thus, the PISA test items are not directly linked to national school curricula but are designed to assess the skills and competences required for the acquisition of knowledge and its application to real-life situations. In this study, as in the previous PISA surveys, students were tested in the domains of reading literacy, mathematical literacy, scientific literacy and problem solving. In PISA 2012 the focus was on mathematical literacy for the second time since 2003. In addition to assessing students' competencies, PISA 2012, like its forerunners, gathered information about students' attitudes, their school context, demographic characteristics and students' social, cultural and family background. Furthermore, questionnaires for teachers, school principals and parents were used for the detection of other relevant background characteristics.
