“PISA ranking: analysis of the latest results, the next edition soon”

The time for the publication of the next PISA ranking is known. In the meantime, find out who is at the top of the latest ranking revealed by the OECD and what are the results of France.

[Put to; day November 7, 2022 at 9:53 a.m.] The next PISA rankings are not for now, since we will have to wait until December 2023 for the publication of the PISA 2022 results. As for the latest PISA ranking – for "International program for monitoring student achievement" – to date, it has been revealed in December 2019. This survey organized by the OECD and carried out every three years – with an interruption in 2021 due to Covid – evaluates the level of 15-year-old students from countries participating in the test. In the latest ranking,France is ranked 23rd out of 79 countries evaluated, a place comparable to the previous ranking dating from 2016. Precision : the Pisa 2019 ranking revealed relates to tests carried out in 2018 and not in 2019. See the full Pisa 2019 ranking

PISA assesses the skills of 600,000 15-year-old students in three areas: reading comprehension, mathematical culture and scientific culture. The quality The quality of this survey is recognized and its results are, every three years since its creation in 2000, closely scrutinized by the ministries of Education. PISA can still be the subject of criticism: the survey is not representative enough (a little more than 6,000 students only are subject to the test in France ), disparities in the educational systems of countries which distort the ranking…

The PISA program, more often called "PISA ranking", owes its acronym to "Program for International Student Assessment". This set of studies carried out by the OECD, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, is designed to measure the performance of financial systems. my educational programs within countries, in a standardized manner and at different rates. large scale. The survey is published every three years after being published. carried out with tens of thousands of adolescents aged 15. It is carried out in the 34 OECD member countries, but also in a large number of partner countries. The first PISA survey dates from 2001.

More concretely, PISA measures the knowledge and skills acquired by young people from the four corners of the planet and the performance of systems educational standards of countries as understood by the OECD. Withfor slogan: "What 15-year-olds know and what they can do with what they know". In 2019, France had arrived at 26th place out of 70:

The PISA survey is not the only educational survey to be used. give rise to a ranking (on this subject, see our ranking of high schools or even the famous ranking of Shanghai special universities). But relayed by media around the world and results of tests at large-scale on the ground, it has maintained a strong impact since its creation almost 20 years ago. Its conclusions are intensely taken up by the national press, which does not hesitate to respond. label misclassified participants as "dunces" or at suspect their students of being "idiots". The ranking of the participating countries also attracts the attention of teachers or education specialists, divided between its usefulness and its usefulness. and its potential deviations. The very important part given to sciences in the ranking is, for example, criticized. However, most are at least in agreement in recognizing the beneficial effects of the media exposure of the PISA ranking: it encourages authorities and public opinion to change their position. take a closer look at how their educational systems work. And at question their effectiveness.

The publication of the results of the PISA 2022 ranking takes place in December 2023. At each PISA ranking, a major skill is tested at each level. In 2022, this major focuses on mathematical culture, as had been the case previously. the case in 2012. The year 2012 will therefore constitute the reference point for the collective evolution of the educational system of each country.

The PISA ranking called "Pisa Ranking 2018" was published in December 2019. The main subject tested this time was reading. More than half a million students took part in 2018  two-hour tests, with the concrete objective of determining "what 15-year-old students know and what they can do with what they know" ;. France is ranked 23rd. Here is the complete ranking:

PISA ranking: analysis of the latest results, next edition soon

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: reading, math and science. The selected schoolchildren are between 4,500 and 10,000 per country. floor on each of the tests. Their selection is done in a very specific way, via a random sample of educational establishments (whether public or private) as well as based on the age criterion: from 15 years +3 months to 30 years 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 à written tests with either open questions or open-ended questions multiple choice. However, it is not a question of ticking without thinking: "The most complex tasks in PISA tests require students to think about their ideas. 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, schoolchildren must even argue. The tests last two hours in total for each student, specifies the OECD. The situations described in the questionnaires are inspired by the real world.
Reading, mathematical culture or even scientific culture tests… "Rather than mastery Based on a specific academic program, PISA tests students' aptitude to achieve their goals. apply the knowledge acquired to brings school to real-life situations,further specifies the official website. It is therefore skills rather than knowledge that are scrutinized. But that's not all. The approach to learning by the student himself or his social, economic, demographic and academic environment is also the subject of a  contextual"questionnaire à fill in half an hour. These factors are indeed potentially at risk. origin of the performance of the students tested and can determine their learning potential over the course of their existence.

Finally, a questionnaire completed by principals allows PISA integrates into its ranking criteria the particular way in which each school is organized.Also note: each three-year assessment focuses on a particular skill. As for the development of the questionnaire, an international consortium works 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.

PISA surveys are carried out under the auspices of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development or OECD which today counts in total 34 member countries worldwide, from Europe (Germany, France, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Portugal, Poland, Countries -Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg, Italy, Iceland, Ireland, Hungary, Greece, Finland, Estonia, Spain, Denmark and Belgium) America (Canada, Mexico, Chile, United States) via Asia-Pacific (Turkey, New Zealand, Japan, Korea). To this must be added Australia (in Oceania) and Israel in the Middle East.

The OECD was born in 1960, of the will of 18 countries from Europe, the United States and Canada to come together to create an organization dedicated to economic development.Many of the current OECD member countries are “most advanced countries”, but emerging countries are also included, such as Chile, Mexico and Turkey. The organization now describes its mission on its website as “promoting policies that will improve economic and social well-being throughout the world.” p>

First published in 2001 under the leadership of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), it is not yet not the only or first study of its kind: there is also, for example, the IEA (International Association for the Evaluation of 39;efficiency in the academic field), born in the middle of the Cold War in the United States. Non-governmental, this association still carries out surveys today. internationally on educational systems and their performance.
