Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies - Leibniz Netzwerk (PIAAC - LN)
PIAAC 2012 provides up-to-date information on key adult skills in 24
countries. The data will be used to carry out further research on the
acquisition and utilisation of skills. To achieve this goal, an
interdisciplinary network of researchers that are experienced with
research in PIAAC was built. This network will evaluate existing
measures in PIAAC and compare them to other measures of skills and
intelligence. In addition, alternative measures will be developed and
subsequently tested using data from the German longitudinal PIAAC
survey. Furthermore, the acquisition and utilisation of adult skills
will be analysed in more detail by linking PIAAC to administrative data.
In addition, the data and findings from this project will be
disseminated to the scientific community through methodological
workshops and a PIAAC research conference.
