New PISA Results: Putting U.S. Achievement in Global Context
How will the U.S. fare against other countries when the results from the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) are released Dec. 6? At our reporters-only webinar, get advance, embargoed access to the full report, as well as an opportunity to ask questions about the findings from a leader at the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Every three years, 15-year-olds in dozens of nations participate in PISA, which seeks to gauge knowledge and skills in math, reading, and science. Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico volunteered to have their scores broken out for international comparison this time. The new PISA report will contain a special emphasis on science achievement; it will also feature data on financial literacy and collaborative problem-solving. Beyond test scores, the report includes a rich set of survey data from students and schools to help put the information in context.
In this journalists-only webinar, we will review the 2016 PISA results and discuss what data and questions reporters should keep in mind as they produce coverage for this important international assessment.
When: Monday, December 5, 1:00–2:00 p.m. Eastern
Presenter: Andreas Schleicher, director for education and skills, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
