This paper presents a comparative analysis of the way the “Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies" (PIAAC), developed and managed by the OECD, entered the popular press discourse in Italy and Denmark over the period 2013 - 2019. The press contributes to knowledge production by presenting information structured from criteria of news value and from ideological stances. Our analysis, done as part of the ENLIVEN research project, investigates how PIAAC results were covered in Italian and Danish newspapers and used in the construction of themes, angles, and “truths” on adult learning.
