Through our press releases, we aim to inform the media, teachers, politicians and all other stakeholders of the latest work we're doing.
We’ve been chosen by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to develop the framework for their landmark PISA educational assessment for 2015.
The PISA assessment is widely recognised as the benchmark for measuring the improvement of education systems worldwide. Seventy-four countries or economies took part in the 2009 test. Our selection is a great opportunity for us to design a test that really reflects how young people around the world are learning.
In 2015, PISA’s main focus will be testing the scientific literacy of students around the world. The test will feature some brand new elements:
We’ll also provide advice to the PISA study group on the benefits, opportunities and implications of using computer adaptive testing for PISA in future.
