The Number Series Study addresses the fundamental research question of what is measured by competence tests used in the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC; Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies): More specifically, to what extent do the PIAAC Literacy and Numeracy measures capture the outcome of learning processes, and to what extent do they measure general cognitive abilities? [] This technical report describes the implementation of the Number Series Study for the third wave of PIAAC-L and focuses only on information specific to the Number Series Study. Detailed information on the PIAAC-L study can be found in the PIAAC-L Technical Reports of the three waves (Martin, Zabal, & Rammstedt, 2018; Zabal, Martin, & Rammstedt, 2016, 2017). After giving a brief overview of the goals of the Number Series Study in this chapter, [the authors] describe the subsample of PIAAC-L used for the Number Series Study in Chapter 2. Information on the survey instruments can be found in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 provides information about the fieldwork. Information concerning data management and products is given in Chapter 5 and a short conclusion is drawn in Chapter 6. (DIPF/Orig.)
