Where Should I Start?
The Gateway is packed with information and resources about PIAAC. See below for some great ideas about where to start! Still not finding what you need? Send us a message.
- Want to find papers and reports based on PIAAC? Start with the Research Database.
- Looking for details about PIAAC methodology? Start with Q&A, Datasets and Tools (particularly, the Technical Reports by NCES and OECD), or the Distance Learning Data Training (DLDT) modules under Data Training Resources.
- Having trouble analyzing PIAAC data? Start with the International Data Explorer and an IDE training video or the Q&A page.
- Wondering about the results from other countries? Start with the Country Reports or the OECD PIAAC Publications.
- Want to know how your students contend against their peers assessed in PIAAC? Start with Education and Skills Online.
- Interested in advocating for your students using PIAAC data? Explore the Outreach Toolkit and the Infographics.
- Want to learn more about the results from PIAAC? Start with the Infographics, Outreach Toolkit module for your population of interest, or search for specific key words in the Research Database.
- Interested specifically in incarcerated adult learners? The Outreach Toolkit and Infographics both contain the most up-to-date information about the Prison Study, but you might also want to take a look at the NCES Report on the 2014 Prison Study.
- Want to include some PIAAC results in an upcoming presentation? See our ready-made powerpoint presentations in the Outreach Toolkit and take what you need. Consider bringing along some Infographics as well.
- Looking for the answer to a specific data question? Consider the International Data Explorer (IDE) or the Online Results Portal.
- Hoping to learn more about a specific state or county? Sorry, this data is not yet available. Check back in late 2018.
- Specifically interested in policy related to incarcerated adults? The IDE, Infographics, and Outreach Toolkit all have individual resources focused on the 2014 Supplemental Prison Study.
