Abstract [en]

This study uses a statistical method to identify verbal items among mathematical items from PISA 2003. The verbal items are preliminary analysed and compared to the non-verbal items concerning number of text lines, response types, cognitive level, and competences measured. The results show that the verbal items, to a higher percentage than the non-verbal items, measures the reproduction competency, are straigh­t­forward, and of open constructed-response type. These results and proposed further analyses are discussed.
