Abstract

In this report, we provide suggestions for improving the way in which education is surveyed in PIAAC. We critically assess how the concepts of educational attainment, educational pathways and non-formal training were measured in the first cycle, and suggest improvements in how these can be measured in the second cycle of PIAAC. We also provide a detailed reasoning of the way in which educational attainment, educational pathways, and non-formal education can be surveyed, and provide concrete suggestions for the implementation and harmonisation of these measurements in the secondycle of PIAAC.
