Program for International Student Assessment (PISA)

PISA, created by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), measures the ability of 15-year-olds to use reading, mathematics and science knowledge and skills to meet real-life challenges. It comprises a two-hour computer-based adaptive assessment of reading, mathematics, science, global competence and the student’s background. PISA was last administered in 2018, with 79 participating countries and 600,000 students.
