1 HKPISA Centre Characteristics of East-Asian Learners: What we Learned from the PISA studies Esther S C Ho & W L Kwong HKPISA Center The Chinese University of Hong Kong 5 August 2008 University of British Columbia Vancouver, BC Canada

2 Paradox of the East Asian Learners Learning Outcomes: Cognitive vs Affective Motivation: Intrinsic vs Extrinsic Attribution of Success: Effort vs Ability Concept of learning : Rote vs Depth Concept of teaching :Transmission-teachercenter vs Facilitative student center approach Learners Characteristics : Passive vs Active

3 Basic Design of OECD/PISA Age-based target population (15 year-olds) National samples of 150 schools with 5,000 students Two hours of testing time for each student (In PISA2006, embedded attitudinal measures) Context questionnaires for the students and schools; Parent questionnaire is optional

4 Testing Scope To test students competencies for real-life situations which are not constrained by the common denominator of national curricula. Three Domains + problem solving (2003 only): Mathematics Science Reading (Problem Solving)

41 Convergences and Divergences of the Characteristics of East Asian Learners High Academic Achievement in Math and Science for all the five East Asian Learners. High Educational Aspiration and also High Testing Anxiety across the East Asian Societies Extremely Low Self-concept for all the East Asian Learners but relatively higher level of Self-efficacy for Chinese Learners Low Extrinsic Motivation across the four East Asian Learners, but relatively higher level of intrinsic motivation for Chinese Learners. Low Memorization across the East Asian Learners, but relatively higher level of Elaboration for Chinese Learners Higher level of Competitive and Cooperative learning in the Chinese Classroom. Orderly Disciplinary Climate but extremely low Sense of Belongings in the East Asian Societies.
