Enrollment Now Open: PISA Online Course for Policy and Education Leaders

The Foundation for Excellence in Education has opened enrollment to their PISA online course for policy and education leaders. As the newest addition to their EdPolicy Leaders online course portfolio, this free, self-paced course takes a deep dive into the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a global survey that ranks countries against one another based on educational achievement. The course will also explore the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA), which allows individual schools to compare themselves to the highest performing schools around the world. These resources give education leaders and policy makers the tools to identify the actions required to prepare all students to succeed in today’s global economy.

The online course will run from May 23-August 15, 2016, and will explore the following objectives:

-Understand what PISA is and how the U.S. ranks in comparison to other countries.

-Identify specific ways in which PISA data can be used to identify strengths and weaknesses of the U.S. education system and support policy actions designed to improve student outcomes.

-Explore the OECD Test for Schools and how the results can be used by schools, districts, and charter systems to improve teaching and learning.
