Programme for International Student Assessment (15-year-old students)

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international assessment of the skills and knowledge of 15 year olds that is administered every three years. Directed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and development (OECD), PISA involves over 60 countries or economies. PISA covers three domains: reading, mathematics, and science. Although each assessment has questions from all three domains, the focus shifts with each administration. Historical results can be found on the websites for CMEC and OECD.

PISA 2018 was administered in 54 schools in Nova Scotia. The major domain for 2018 was reading and results were released in December 2019.

The next administration of PISA is scheduled for 2022 and the major domain assessed will be mathematics
