Teaching practices used in the students' English classes, student-teacher relationships and the disciplinary climate in the classroom are also examined.

PISA 2009: Digital readers at age 15: Results from the PISA 2009 Electronic Reading Assessment The Electronic Reading Assessment is a new and innovative component of PISA that acknowledges the increasing relevance of electronic text and recognises its importance as a feature of reading. Those students who took part in the Electronic Reading Assessment (ERA) were given a 10 minute practice session and then asked to complete a 40 minute computer based assessment. The texts used in this assessment were hypertexts. Hypertexts are where the user has navigation tools and features that allow them to move through pages of text freely in numerous ways.
