El Programa Internacional Para La Evaluación De Los Alumnos (Pisa). Una Perspectiva General, Ross Turner

Ross Turner

This article provides a general overview of the PISA project with the aim of setting up an appropriate context for debating on some specific outcomes of the 2003 assessment survey. This general perspective focuses on the goals of the project, its participants, proce­dures and organisation, its major components and methodologies as well as on the precise ch­aracteristics of Mathematics in PISA, which was the main assessment subject in 2003. Similarly, a very brief summary on certain key outcomes of PISA 2003 assessment in Spain is also provided.
