PISA 2009 Results

Edit Article


The OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) answers the following questions by surveying 15-year-olds in the principal industrialised countries.

  • Are students well prepared for future challenges?
  • Can they analyse, reason and communicate effectively?
  • Do they have the capacity to continue learning throughout life?

Every three years, it assesses how far students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills essential for full participation in society.[1]

PISA 2009 key findings presents the initial results from the 2009 survey, which assessed the competencies of 15-year-olds in reading, mathematics and science (with a focus on reading) in 65 countries and economies. The report comprises the six volumes listed below. In 2010 students from a further 9 countries and economies took the PISA 2009 test.
