This years focus is mathematics with an additional test in creative thinking. The new PISA 2021 mathematics framework was recently launched.
Preparations for this test are underway with participants from 36 OECD members and likely 50+ non-members involved.
PISA 2024 will focus on science and include an optional assessment of competence in foreign languages.
For PISA 2024 countries will be given the opportunity to participate in the optional assessment of Learning in the Digital World. The objective of this assessment includes developing embedded assessment tasks in an open-ended, digital learning environment, and the analysis and scoring of the data.
On 4 February 2020, a Q&A webinar for bidders to develop and implement the assessment of Learning in the Digital World, took place.
