(AGENPARL) – MüNCHEN (BAYERN), dom 25 ottobre 2020
The main results of the seventh study “Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)” on students’ skills in reading, mathematics and science at the end of their mandatory schooling were published in December 2019.
The German part of the study is conducted by the Center for International Student Assessment (ZIB) at TUM on behalf of the German Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. In addition to TUM, participants in ZIB include the Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education (DIPF) and the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (IPN).
The comparisons in the report on the German part of the study refer primarily to the group of OECD nations, not to the other participating countries, where several factors make comparison more difficult. For example, in some of the countries only particular regions take part in the study.
Since culturally conditioned response patterns cannot be ruled out, comparisons between individual countries may be distorted.
For statistical reasons, comparisons between countries based on the extra questionnaire given to teachers is not possible.
