PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is an international study that measures 15-year-old students’ reading, mathematics and scientific literacy. The assessment takes place every three years and is conducted in more than 80 countries. Norway has participated in PISA since the first cycle in 2000.

PISA is developed and implemented by the OECD member countries. In Norway, the study is administrated by the Department for Teacher Education and School Research at the University of Oslo.

PISA 2022

PISA 2022 was administered in Norway in the spring of 2022. Approximately 8500 students from 271 schools in Norway participated in PISA. The students conducted a two-hour test with questions related to reading, mathematics, science and economy. They also answered a 45-minute questionnaire about themselves, their attitudes, dispositions and beliefs, their home background, and their school and learning experiences. In addition, a questionnaire was administered to school principals. Results from PISA 2022 will be published December 2022.

The results from PISA are published both nationally and internationally. The Norwegian results from previous surveys are published in national reports and can be downloaded from the project’s Norwegian website.
