Details of survey: Chapter 04 - PISA 2015 Field Trial

Survey: Chapter 04 - PISA 2015 Field Trial
Superordinate study: PISA 2015 - Programme for International Student Assessment
Abstract: Theoretical considerations led to the development of a great amount of questionnaire material, which was localized to fit the contexts of more than 70 countries and economies, implemented in a study with about 120,000 students across these countries, and analyzed to yield indicators on how well questions functioned across and within countries. Such a study, and its results, depends on design and methodological considerations and on decisions made during preparation and implementation. This chapter summarizes decisions regarding the design and analysis procedures of the PISA 2015 field trial, and the resulting data that were used to develop the PISA 2015 main survey’s context assessment. Furthermore, this chapter provides strategies and reasoning related to the choice of questionnaire material that was deemed to be suitable to assess learning contexts in different countries equally well.
