PISA is administered every 3 years to fifteen-year-old students in schools around the world to assess their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and to measure their school’s performance. These aggregate results provide benchmarks to measure and compare against the educational systems of over 80 countries.
The OECD Test for Schools assessment comprises 2 hours of questions in reading, mathematics and science and a 30-minute student survey about their home and school environments and experiences. The test takes a total of 3 to 3.5 hours to administer, including time for instructions and breaks.
Data-driven educational leaders use the data and insights from OECD Test for Schools to:
- Analyze the comprehension, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities of 15 year olds in the subjects of reading, mathematics and science.
- Evaluate student satisfaction and engagement with their learning environment.
- Compare results against other data-driven, high performing schools across the globe.
The OECD Test for Schools is a unique assessment offering insightful data to help schools better prepare students for success. Educators from a wide spectrum of schools and school systems have administered the OECD Test for Schools, and use this valuable tool for improving school and student performance.
