Concretely, the three-year PISA survey consists of: have students from each participating country complete a background questionnaire by type of assessment. Three subjects are tested Students: reading, maths and science. The selected schoolchildren are between 4 and 500 students. and 10,000 per country floor on each of the tests. Their selection is done in a very particular way, via a random sample of educational establishments ( whether public or private) as well as on the criterion of age: 15 years +3 years; month &agrav; 16 years +2 months when the assessment begins. It is therefore not the class in which they study which determines the choice of the "guinea pigs".
Then, the selected students are subjected to testing. written tests with either open questions or open-ended questions multiple choice. However, it is not a question of ticking off without thinking: "The most complex tasks of the PISA evidence asks students to think about what they think about. what they read and evaluate it, not just respond to what they read questions to which there is only one correct answer, remind the organizers.
For open questions, students must even argue. The tests last two hours in total for each element ;ve, specifies the OECD. The situations described in the questionnaires are inspired by the real world.
Tests of reading, mathematical culture or even scientific culture… "Rather than mastery of a specific school program, PISA tests students'aptitude to apply acquired knowledge à “school to real-life situations”, the official website further specifies. It is therefore skills rather than knowledge that are scrutinized. But that's not all. The approach to learning through learning involves the student himself or his social, economic, and educational environment. mographic and academic are also the subject of a contextual questionnaire. &agrav; fill in half an hour. These factors are indeed potentially à origin of the performance of the students tested and can determine their learning potential over the course of their lives.
Finally, a questionnaire completed by the principals allows à PISA integrates into its classification criteria the particular way in which each school is organized. Also note: each triennial assessment focuses on a particular skill. As for the development of the questionnaire, an international consortium is working hand in hand with the national project directors. It is also this Consortium which, once the responses have been collected, communicates the results to the OECD Secretariat – project manager – as well as to the Committee director of PISA.
