PISA: Male 15-year-olds by reading proficiency level (%). Level 1B

  • Provider: World Bank
  • Source URL: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/LO.PISA.REA.1B.MA
  • Catalog: Yearly from 2009 to 2012
  • Localized to: English
  • Description:

    Percentage of 15-year-old male students scoring higher than 262 but lower than or equal to 335 on the PISA reading scale. Tasks at level 1B require the reader to locate a single piece of explicitly stated information in a prominent position in a short, syntactically simple text with a familiar context and text type, such as a narrative or a simple list. The text typically provides support to the reader, such as repetition of information, pictures or familiar symbols. There is minimal competing information. In tasks requiring interpretation the reader may need to make simple connections between adjacent pieces of information. 2000, 2003, and 2006 PISA assessments used a different reading proficiency scale (Below Level 1 to Level 5) than later assessments, which use a reading scale from Below Level 1B to Level 6. Because an equivalent proficiency level to "Below Level 1B" and Level 1B were not calculated for the 2000, 2003, and 2006 PISA Reports, the data are not currently available for those years. Use caution in comparing proficiency scores across years. For more information on comparability of results, consult the PISA website: http://www.oecd.org/pisa/
