Student Common Part Questionnaire – English

Instructions

In this questionnaire you will find questions about the following topics:

  • You, your family, and your home
  • How you think about your life
  • Your school
  • Your school schedule and learning time
  • Learning science in school
  • Your view on science

Please read each question carefully and answer as accurately as you can.

In this questionnaire, there are no right or wrong answers. Your answers should be the ones that are right for yourself.

You may ask for help if you do not understand something or are not sure how to answer a question.

Some questions relate to science. Please think of all the different subjects and courses in your school that teach content related to science. Your school might teach science in different subjects such as physics, chemistry, biology, Earth and geology, space and astronomy, applied sciences and technology (e.g., engineering, robotics), or your school teaches a general, integrated, or comprehensive science course (e.g., anatomy and physiology, biological and physical science).

Please note that the forward button used to proceed to the next question is located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen. In some instances you may need to scroll down to the bottom of your screen to access this forward button.

Your answers will be combined with answers from other students to calculate totals and averages. All information (or responses) you provide may only be used for statistical purposes and may not be disclosed, or used, in identifiable form for any other purpose except as required by law [Education Science Reform Act of 2002 (ESRA 2002), 20 U.S. Code, Section 9573].

According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no persons are required to respond to a collection of information unless such collection displays a valid OMB control number. The valid OMB control number for this voluntary information collection is 1850-0755. The time required to complete this information collection is estimated to average 30 minutes per response, including the time to review instructions, search existing data resources, gather the data needed, and complete and review the information collection. If you have any suggestions for improving the form, or comments or concerns regarding the accuracy of the time estimate(s) or the status of your individual submission of this form, please write to: Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), National Center for Education Statistics, U.S. Department of Education, 1990 K Street, N.W., Room 8122, Washington, D.C. 20006.
