PISA 2018 results


The OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) examines what students know in reading, mathematics and science, and what they can do with what they know. It provides the most comprehensive and rigorous international assessment of student learning outcomes to date. Results from PISA indicate the quality and equity of learning outcomes attained around the world, and allow educators and policy makers to learn from the policies and practices applied in other countries. This is one of six volumes that present the results of the PISA 2018 survey, the seventh round of the triennial assessment.

There are 6 volumes analysing the results from the 2018 assessment: Volume I: What students know and can do, Volume II: Where all students can succeed, Volume III: What school life means for students' lives, Volume IV: Are students smart about money?, Volume V: Effective Policies, Successful Schools and Volume VI: Are students ready to thrive in an interconnected world?
