An international research team jointly conceived an item development model which was used to develop a new test instrument to measure the technology literacy of secondary school students. This tool was used to assess the literacy skills of 270 pupils from Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and England. The results show that 13 to 16 year old students display a poorly developed technology literacy level only. 25 per cent of the items on average were incorrectly answered with a high certainty sentiment, which suggests, that students do not only lack relevant knowledge in the field of technology but in addition also hold a rela-tively high number of strongly built misconceptions. Interestingly, there are no major differences between countries and gender. [less ▲]
