The most recent OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey enables educators, policy makers and the wider community to compare Australian students with each other, as well as with their counterparts across the world. PISA measures the extent to which 15-year-old students near the end of compulsory education have acquired the knowledge and skills that young adults need to meet the challenges of the future. This Snapshot examines aspects of reading focusing on 15-year-olds’ attitudes towards reading and how they have changed between 2000, 2009 and 2018. Do students enjoy reading? How often do they read for enjoyment and what are the similarities and differences in reading enjoyment by different groups; sex, Indigenous background and socioeconomic background?
