PISA: What It Measures, Why It Matters Webinar/EventNovember 12, 2013
What can the United States learn from the highest-performing nations in the world? On December 3, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will release the results from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), an assessment of reading literacy, mathematics, and science given in 2012 to fifteen-year-olds in sixty-five nations. While most of the focus on the release of the results will likely be on the international rankings, PISA provides a great deal of information on student learning and teaching and the policies and practices of high-performing countries.
