Partial contents: Students' learning time -- Patterns of students' learning time -- Patterns of students' learning time by population sub-groups -- Relationships between students' learning time and performance.; Summary: This report focuses on how students use learning time, both in and out of school. What are the ideal conditions to ensure that students use their learning time efficiently? What can schools do to maximize the learning that occurs during the limited amount of time students spend in class? In what kinds of lessons does learning time reap the most benefits, and how can this be determined? The report draws on data from the 2006 cycle of the Program of International Student Assessment (PISA) to describe differences across and within countries in how much time students spend studying different subjects, how much time they spend in different types of learning activities, how they allocate their learning time and how they perform academically.--Publisher's description.
