The department’s Centre for Educational Assessment is delighted to host the official launch of the PISA 21 Mathematics Framework in Oxford.

About the event

Andreas Schleicher joins education experts from RTI International, Oxford University’s Centre for Educational Assessment, Department of Education, University of Oxford and Amazon Web Services in a panel discussion on October 14 from 3:00 to 4:30pm BST to launch the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2021 Mathematics Frameworks. The public event will be held at Somerville College in Oxford, UK and will be live streamed globally.

The mathematics framework was built by a team of global mathematics experts over the past 18 months and will define the theoretical underpinnings of the PISA mathematics assessment. PISA is an international assessment conducted by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that assesses what 15-year-olds need to know to be prepared for the future. The panel will discuss PISA in 2021, mathematics education in a global economy, and the importance of developing frameworks to guide assessments in the context of mathematics.
