This event will feature an in-depth discussion on the latest Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) results with Andreas Schleicher, Director for Education and Skills at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and a panel of global education leaders from North America and Asia, including former Japanese State Minister of Education Kan Suzuki, Nanyang Technological University Vice President and Professor Lee Sing-Kong, University of Hong Kong Professor Hau Kit-Tai, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, and Asia Society Vice President of Education Anthony Jackson.
The PISA is an international assessment that aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students. To date, students representing more than 80 economies have participated in the assessment. PISA is unique because it develops tests that are not directly linked to the school curriculum. The tests are designed to assess to what extent students can apply their knowledge to real-life situations and be equipped for full participation in society. Beginning in 2018, the PISA will include assessments of student global competence.
