What is PISA 2018 telling Australia? And are we listening?

By Peter Adams
Price: $37.89


The author explores Australia’s declining performance in the OECD’s PISA program, then considers how government, education systems and schools across Australia might make better use of the extensive body of knowledge and advice provided with each PISA round of testing. He argues educators must go well beyond just international comparisons of PISA scores and country rankings, and utilise the expert advice the OECD offers, based upon the work of its analysts, authors and expert advisory groups. He argues there is much to learn and benefit from in PISA, at both the ‘macro’ and ‘micro’ level, provided we look and listen carefully, and are sufficiently humble to accept authoritative and wise advice.
