PISA Results Available at Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics Website

The results of the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), the international assessment that measures student reading, mathematics, and science literacy, are available at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) website. The assessment for 15-year-old students also measures general, cross-curricular competencies, such as problem solving and functional skills. PISA is coordinated by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and in the United States by NCES. The assessment was first administered in 2000 and is conducted every three years. Results for the most recent assessment (2012) are available at: http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/pisa/?newsflash=true.
