PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) – international assessment Study
Program for International Student Assessment
PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) is an international study of the assessment of educational achievements of 15-year-olds in the field of reading, mathematical and natural science literacy. It is held by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) every three years. PISA measures learning outcomes by assessing how well 15-year-olds who are nearing the end of compulsory education in most participating countries are prepared to use the knowledge and skills necessary for full participation in social and economic life to solve real problems and tasks.
Since the PISA-2015 cycle, the study has been conducted mainly in a computer format. The sample of PISA participants is formed from the number of students of schools and colleges, whose age ranges from 15 years and 3 months to 16 years and 2 months at the time of the start of the data collection of the approbation and basic research. In each cycle, one of the three directions is determined by the main one for conducting a deeper assessment. The assessment takes place in the form of a two-hour test. Each test form includes four 30-minute blocks of tasks. In addition to the test, students fill out personal data that are used to analyze factors that influence the development of their skills. PISA also includes measurements of general or interdisciplinary competencies, such as collaborative problem solving or global competence.
The study makes it possible to assess whether students who have received a general compulsory education have the knowledge and skills necessary for full functioning in society (functional literacy). PISA results provide an opportunity to compare different education systems and use the experience of leading OECD countries in the development of national education strategies.
Kazakhstan has been participating in PISA since 2009.
According to the results of PISA, the country receives an evidence base for new reforms and initiatives in the field of education. Based on the data obtained, it is possible to identify the strengths and weaknesses of national education, to develop recommendations for further development. The continuous participation of Kazakhstan will allow us to measure the trends in the formation of functional literacy of Kazakhstani students over the past 12 years.
