    The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a new regular survey of 15-year olds assessing their preparedness for adult life. The PISA programme was launched in 1997 by the OECD with the objective to develop regular, reliable and policy relevant indicators on student achievement. The data strategy defines three cycles of the project: PISA 2000 focusing on reading literacy, PISA 2003 focusing on mathematical literacy and finally PISA 2006 focusing on scientific literacy. HKPISA 2000 and HKPISA 2003 were successfully implemented by the HKPISA Centre, the Hong Kong Institute of Educational Research of me Chinese University of Hong Kong. PISA 2006 constitutes the third cycle of the project, which will be conducted in 2004-2006. The purpose of the HKCPISA 2006 study is to continue the investigation of HKPISA2000 and HKPISA2003 and develop a longitudinal database for the study of several problems confronting the youth in Hong Kong secondary schools. The study will parallel the third cycle of PISA study conducted by the OECD in over 40 countries. This international study can extend our knowledge on the effectiveness of Hong Kong basic education by establishing a timely, longitudinal, and multilevel database. The full project can provide direction for school reform and for students’ learning as well as insights into strengths and weaknesses. They also provide tools for central authorities to monitor achievement levels especially when administration is devolved and schools are being run in partnership with communities. (ED04383)
