Grants to this Grantee
for refinement and global scale-up of the PISA-based Test for Schools  
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development comprises thirty-four countries and stimulates economic progress and trade; its Directorate for Education and Skills administers the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), one of the best measures of deeper learning. The group will refine the PISA-based Test for Schools by shifting to computer delivery to lower costs, adding a problem-solving component, developing protocols for reporting on district-level performance, and establishing an international data processing unit. A valid, easily deployed deeper learning assessment could influence the trajectory of state standardized tests, helping ensure that significant numbers of students are measured on deeper learning outcomes.
for development of an evidence base for collaborative problem-solving assessment tasks  
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.
