PISA for Development


Just published: PISA for Development Briefs


PISA for Development aims to increase middle- and low-income countries' use of PISA assessments for monitoring progress towards nationally-set targets, for the analysis of factors associated with student learning outcomes, particularly for poor and marginalised populations, for institutional capacity-building and for monitoring international targets in the Education 2030 framework developed within the UN’s thematic consultations. 

It will do this using enhanced PISA survey instruments that are more relevant for the contexts found in middle- and low-income countries but which produce scores that are on the same scales as the main PISA assessment.

The pilot project will also develop an approach and methodology for including out of school children in the surveys. The project's results will be obtained over a 4-year period (2015-18) through a partnership involving eight low-income countries, concerned development partners (DAC members plus the World Bank, UNESCO, UNICEF and other UN bodies and regional organisations), contractors Educational Testing Service and The Learning Bar, and the OECD.
