Upper secondary education is the final stage of formal education for the majority of students in OECD countries, and as such it is a crucial staging point towards further learning and employment. But how successful are upper secondary schools in preparing young adults for life?

The International Survey of Upper Secondary Schools (ISUSS) was established to answer this question. It investigates key factors which shape the success of upper secondary students' learning, such as school management, financing, admission policies, professional development for teachers and ICT integration. The first phase of the survey, involving a classification of upper secondary programmes in order to define the target population, was conducted in 18 OECD countries throughout 2001. However, only 15 completed the data collection in phase two of the study and their results are contained in the ISUSS analytical report Completing the Foundation for Lifelong Learning: An OECD Survey of Upper Secondary Schools.

As a companion volume, this report describes the methodology underlying the ISUSS study, along with additional features related to the implementation of the project at a level of detail that allows researchers to understand and replicate the analyses. It also provides a guide to the ISUSS database which is available on the OECD website at www.oecd.org\edu\isuss.
