Problem-Solving in a Technology Rich Environment and Related Topics: A Centre for Literacy Research Scan for Fall Institute 2013 (2013)

This document is housed on the Centre for Literacy's server.

This background paper was prepared for the Centre for Literacy’s Fall Institute 2013, held in Montreal, Quebec.

The institute was the first large Canadian and international gathering after the release of results from the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), an initiative of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that provides internationally comparable measures of literacy, numeracy, and problem solving in technology-rich environments (PS-TRE).

This paper offers an overview of documents about digital competencies and PS-TRE, tracing the origin of PS-TRE as a specific domain back to the 2003 U.S. National Assessment of Educational Progress, before it was adopted for the PIAAC.

The author has also included links to documents and video presentations on the literacy and numeracy domains of the PIAAC.

The Centre for Literacy supports best practices and informed policy development in Literacy and Essential Skills.
