PISA- Avoid the Panic!

The latest round of PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) scores will be released on December 3.

Every three years the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) releases results of tests conducted on 15-year-olds in more than 30 countries and city-states—what the OECD calls “economies”.

The following information sheets were created by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society to help our members and the public understand what PISA is, and isn’t, designed to do. Here’s what teachers and parents need to know to avoid PISA Panic:

PISA for Teachers

PISA for Parents 

This information is also available on the MTS website. You can find the link here.

Together we can make sure the results are interpreted productively, with an understanding of PISA’s intent and context.
