PISA-based Test for Schools - How to Join



  Joining the PISA-based Test for Schools


The assessment is flexible and can be used to fit with local needs. Some examples of how the PISA-based Test for Schools can be used include:

  • On-demand availability for schools across a country or region
  • International school benchmarking at national or regional level
  • As a component of other research programmes, e.g., the OECD's Learning Environment's Evaluation Programme

Why participate in the assessment?

The PISA-based Test for Schools provides important peer learning opportunities for educators – locally, nationally and internationally – and the opportunity to share good practices to help identify “what works” to improve learning and build better skills for better lives. Participating schools receive the following:

  • A comprehensive 150-page report with over 40 figures that are unique to each school.
  • Information on the learning climate at school, as well as students’ engagement toward learning, to enhance school leaders’ understanding of the overall performance of a school.

Examples of relevant school policies and practices from around the world to stimulate reflections and discussions among local educators on school improvement.
