The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) seeks to promote policies that improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. This grant would support a study that would evaluate the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2015 assessment of collaborative problem solving; specifically, it would investigate if it is valid to assess this competency by asking students to interact with a computer "agent" rather than another human. If this project is successful, it would support the Program’s goal of demonstrating for the field that and how it is possible to measure one of the deeper learning competencies not currently included in the Common Core State Standards assessments.

for PARIS21’s Toward Inclusive Climate Change Data Ecosystems project  
In close consultation and coordination with the Center for Open Data Enterprise and Open Data Watch (ODW), the OECD/PARIS21 will help develop an ecosystem in a selected pilot country for climate change data to help improve its climate change data practices, governance, and use. Work in the pilot country will include a detailed assessment of climate change-related data availability and use practices, identify data sources and actors, and ultimately develop a plan for improving the collection, governance, management, and use of climate data in that country. As part of the assessment process, the OECD/PARIS21 will produce a General Climate Data Template that can be a starting point for creating a national inventory of global, regional, and local climate data requirements and needs in the pilot country. The OECD/PARIS21 will also complete a template on Open Climate Data to assess climate change data availability, openness, and use in several countries, drawing on ODW’s Open Data Inventory, as a context for examining those issues in the pilot country. Ultimately, the pilot will create a scalable collaboration model to help other countries also leverage climate change data to advance effective and inclusive climate change adaptation policies while supporting international efforts around climate change mitigation.

for refinement and global scale-up of the PISA-based Test for Schools  
OECD proposes to advance the PISA-Based Test for Schools pilot through refinements that include shifting to computer delivery of the test and laying the groundwork for its worldwide expansion. Australia, Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom/England, and Hong Kong/China have expressed interest in adopting the assessment.
for researching the evidence base on open educational resources  
OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation conducts educational research, with an emphasis on emerging trends and issues. The proposed study aims to explore OER’s economic, social, and educational benefits and stimulate an international policy dialogue on OER.
