The ‘Programme for International Student Assessment’ (PISA) is an international measure of student achievement carried out every three years, weighing the performance of 15-year-olds in reading, mathematics, and science literacy in over 70 countries and economies worldwide.
By examining PISA’s role in education governance and policy discourse, this new book, edited by Prof. Louis Volante, with a foreword by Prof. Jo Ritzen, provides an in-depth analysis of the educational change process – within our increasingly global educational policy environment.
Exploring the socio-political drivers of large-scale educational reform worldwide, chapter authors examine PISA’s national and global implications from various regional contexts.
Through the presentation of cross-disciplinary viewpoints and topical issues related to the PISA international survey, this volume explains the degree to which PISA-focused research is linked to national educational policy discourses and international education agendas.
