PIAAC: Detailed Q&A (2013)

The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), an initiative of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), provides internationally comparable measures of literacy, numeracy, and problem solving in technology-rich environments (PS-TRE). This document provides detailed answers to 19 questions about the PIAAC.

The questions range from fairly straightforward ones about the nature of the PIAAC to complex ones about statistical analysis contained within the study.

The document offers information about the nature of literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving; levels of literacy; and the way in which information was collected for the international survey.

There is also information specific to Canada, including its reasons for participating in the PIAAC and a discussion of how well the survey results represent the Canadian population as a whole.
