PIAAC

Introducción

El Programa para la Evaluación Internacional de las Competencias de los adultos (PIAAC) es una iniciativa de la OCDE para valorar el nivel de conocimientos y el grado y distribución de destrezas de la población adulta a lo largo de su vida laboral, entre los 16 y los 65 años. Esta evaluación se encuadra en un marco comparativo coherente para poder establecer contrastes internacionales.
