Written by: Beatrice Schindler Rangvid


This study paper represents a new departure in the literature on PISA surveys, in that the author analyses the effects of country of origin on PISA reading test results for pupils of non-Danish ethnic origins. The analyses are based on an extended dataset comprising extracts from the data for PISA 2000, PISA Copenhagen 2004 and PISA Ethnic 2005.
