    Skills Matter - Further Results from the Survey of Adult Skills

    In the wake of the technological revolution that began in the last decades of the 20th century, labour market demand for information-processing and other high-level cognitive and interpersonal skills is growing substantially. The Survey of Adult Skills, a product of the OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), was designed to provide insights into the availability of some of these key skills in society and how they are used at work and at home. The first survey of its kind, it directly measures proficiency in several information-processing skills – namely literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments.


    This volume reports results from the 24 countries and regions that participated in the first round of the survey in 2011-12 (first published in OECD Skills Outlook 2013: First Results from the Survey of Adult Skills) and from the nine additional countries that participated in the second round in 2014-15 (Chile, Greece, Indonesia [Jakarta], Israel, Lithuania, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovenia and Turkey). It describes adults’ proficiency in the three information-processing skills assessed, and examines how skills proficiency is related to labour market and social outcomes. Another related report, The Survey of Adult Skills: Reader’s Companion, Second Edition, describes the design and methodology of the survey and its relationship to other international assessments of young students and adults.

    Les adultes, l'informatique et la résolution de problèmes - Où est donc le problème ?

    Ce rapport présente une analyse approfondie des résultats de l’Évaluation des compétences des adultes dans le
    domaine de la résolution de problèmes dans des environnements à forte composante technologique, ainsi que
    des indicateurs sur l’utilisation des TIC et la résolution de problèmes. Les pays nordiques et les Pays-Bas affichent
    les pourcentages les plus élevés d’adultes (environ 40 %) aux niveaux supérieurs de l’échelle de compétences en
    résolution de problèmes, tandis que l’Irlande, la Pologne et la République slovaque accusent les pourcentages
    les plus faibles (environ 20 %) d’adultes à ces niveaux. La variation des niveaux de compétences en résolution de
    problèmes à l’aide des TIC s’observant entre les pays reflète des différences d’accès à Internet et de fréquence
    d’utilisation du courrier électrique parmi les adultes. Ce rapport met au jour une forte corrélation entre d’un côté,
    les compétences en résolution de problèmes, et de l’autre, l’âge et les compétences cognitives génériques, même
    après contrôle d’autres facteurs pertinents. Il montre l’existence d’un lien entre la maîtrise des compétences
    en résolution de problèmes à l’aide des TIC et l’élévation du taux d’activité, la baisse du taux de chômage et
    l’augmentation de la rémunération. Par contraste, il souligne la forte incidence négative d’un manque d’expérience
    en informatique sur la situation sur le marché du travail, même après contrôle d’autres facteurs. L’analyse examine
    les politiques permettant de promouvoir l’accès aux TIC et leur utilisation, les possibilités de développer les
    compétences en résolution de problèmes à l’aide de la formation scolaire ou de l’apprentissage tout au long de
    la vie, et l’importance des compétences en résolution de problèmes dans le cadre des services publics en ligne.
