PIAAC Nordic: many adults poor at problem solving using computers
Nordic countries get top scores in OECD’s survey of adult competencies. Now new comparative Nordic research reveals that far from everyone is on the winning team. A surprising 10 percent of the population have poor skills in literacy, numeracy and problem solving using a PC. If nothing is done, many risk being excluded from working and public life. These are the results from the first PIAAC for the Nordic countries which measures adult competencies.
The Nordic Labour Journal has been given a preview and features interviews with representatives from the Nordic research network.
