PISA-based Test for Schools

 

 

The PISA-based Test for Schools is a student assessment tool, used by schools to support research, benchmarking and school improvement. It provides descriptive information and analyses on the skills and creative application of knowledge of 15-year-old students in reading, mathematics, and science comparable to main PISA scales. It also provides information on how factors within and outside of school are linked to student performance. Student questionnaires are an important part of the assessment, collecting information on socio-economic background, attitudes and interests in reading, science and mathematics, and the school learning environment.
