Learning for Tomorrow's World: First results from PISA 2003:
"Learning for Tomorrow's World: First results from PISA 2003 presents initial results from the PISA 2003 assessment. The report goes well beyond an examination of the relative standing of countries in mathematics, science and reading. It also looks at a wider range of educational outcomes that include students' motivation to learn, their beliefs about themselves and their learning strategies."
"PISA 2003 is the second assessment in the Program: the first survey was in 2000. Well over a quarter of a
million students in 41 countries took part in a two-hour test in their schools, assessing their skills in mathematics,
reading, science and problem solving. All 30 OECD member countries participated, as well as 11 partner countries."
