Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2009
PISA is run by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and it assesses the knowledge and skills of students aged fifteen as they near the end of their schooling. Pupils are assessed on their competence to address real life challenges involving reading, mathematics and science.
The 2009 results paint an extremely disappointing picture of our performance and progress. Read the Minister's letter to stakeholders below.
The national report setting out PISA outcomes for Wales can be accessed on the website of the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), the national programme manager for PISA in Wales, England and Northern Ireland.
The OECD international report of PISA performance across the 65 participating countries can be accessed at the PISA website.
