The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an internationally standardised assessment that was jointly developed by participating countries and administered to15-year-old pupils in schools. The present publication presents the theoretical approach behind the development of the 2009 PISA survey. The re-worked and expanded framework for reading literacy includes not only the assessment of reading and understanding of printed texts, but also an innovative component to assess how well students read, navigate and understand electronic texts. Also, this book provides the basis for measuring mathematical and scientific competencies. Last but not least, it presents the theory behind the questionnaires used to gather information from students, schools and parents on students’ home backgrounds, students’ approaches to learning and school learning environments.
