ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which describes a multilevel model of achievement in science using data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) 2006 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). The study investigates how much variance in science achievement is explained by the said model. It also examines how much variance in science achievement is explained by school structural and socioeconomic characteristics, and how much by student demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. The study demonstrates that about 5% of the total explained variance is accounted for by Irish students' self-reported efficacy in science and enjoyment of science.
