New! OECD Report on Adults, Computers and Problem Solving
An in-depth analysis of the results from PIAAC's problem solving in technology-rich environments (PSTRE) assessment. Proficiency in problem solving using ICT is related to greater participation in the labour force, lower unemployment, and higher wages. By contrast, a lack of computer experience has a substantial negative impact on labour market outcomes, even after controlling for other factors.
DEADLINE EXTENDED! The National Institute for Child and Human Development (NICHD), the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), and the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) are pleased to announce a call for research papers on the relationship of education and skills to public health for adults and their families, particularly for those most at risk for poor educational, economic and health outcomes.
