  • Provider: World Bank
  • Source URL: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/LO.PISA.REA.4
  • Catalog: Yearly from 2000 to 2015
  • Localized to: English
  • Description:

    Percentage of 15-year-old students scoring higher than 553 but lower than or equal to 626 on the PISA reading scale. Tasks at Level 4 involve retrieving information require the reader to locate and organize several pieces of embedded information. Some tasks at this level require interpreting the meaning of nuances of language in a section of text by taking into account the text as a whole. Other interpretative tasks require understanding and applying categories in an unfamiliar context. Reflective tasks at this level require readers to use formal or public knowledge to hypothesize about or critically evaluate a text. Readers must demonstrate an accurate understanding of long or complex texts whose content or form may be unfamiliar. 2000, 2003, and 2006 PISA assessments used a different reading proficiency scale (Levels 1 to 5) than later assessments, which use a scale from Level 1B to Level 6. PISA 2000/2003/2006 Level 4 data have been included in this database as Level 4 because they are based on an identical score range. Use caution in comparing proficiency scores across years.
