Indonesian education, PISA scores and 3 reading strategies that work

Exley, Beryl E. (2016) Indonesian education, PISA scores and 3 reading strategies that work. In Proceedings of the 2nd Sriwijaya University Learning and Education International Conference (SULE-IC), Sriwijaya University, Aryaduta Hotel Palembang, South Sumatra-Indonesia, pp. 65-82.


This presentation introduces me and my engagement with Indonesian contexts of teaching and learning. I then introduce the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) “Programme for International Student Assessment” (PISA), noting the challenges facing Indonesia in this period of reform. Publically acknowledging the challenges is an important step in narrowing the agenda and effecting positive future changes. Based on this information from the PISA data, I introduce three effective reading strategies that can be used in all years of schooling: (i) summarising non-literary texts to get the main detail; (ii) reading figurative language in literary texts; and (iii) actively reading to make meaning from the unwritten ellipses.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
