Has anyone been able to find the part of the technical appendix in PISA 2012 which deals with the issue of whether China cheated? Or, for that matter, whether any other country cheated?
Andreas Schleicher wrote in his blog today that this is a nonsense, and that critics like Time magazine “didn't bother to read the PISA 2012 Technical Background Annex, which shows there was no cheating, whatsoever, involved.”
I can’t find that bit in the technical background annex, and the page to which Schleicher directs readers in his blog is a very general one, including parts which the system says I don’t have access to. I have sent an email requesting access, and have looked through lots of tables but can only find lots and lots of country tables and figures.
Can anyone help direct me to the relevant part of the annex?
