OECD to publish results of latest PISA survey on Tuesday 5 December 2023

Since 2000, the OECD has been evaluating the knowledge and skills of the world’s 15-year-olds through its Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey. Around 690,000 students in 81 countries took the most recent test, representing about 29 million 15-year-old students. The focus in 2022 was on mathematics. Most students spent one hour answering questions on maths, with the other hour used to assess reading, science or creative thinking. They also spent 35 minutes answering a questionnaire to learn about their attitudes to school, their homelife and other issues.

PISA results reveal what is possible in education by showing what students in the highest-performing and most rapidly improving education systems can do. They also show trends on digital learning, parental involvement, bullying and other issues, as well as information on gender gaps, socio-economic gaps and educational spending versus outcomes.

PISA 2022 will be published at 11.00 a.m. Paris time/CET (10.00 a.m. GMT) on Tuesday 5 December 2023.

OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann and OECD Director for Education and Skills Andreas Schleicher will launch the report at a press conference at OECD headquarters, at 11.00 a.m. local time on Tuesday 5 December. The press conference (in English, with French interpretation) will be followed by a panel discussion from 12:00 to 13:00 - full details below.
