PISA Problems
Tienken, Christopher
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v10 n4 p4-18 Win 2014
Pundits and bureaucrats use the results from international tests, particularly the PISA, to make claims about the quality of the public education system in the United States and make policy recommendations. In this article I argue, with evidence, that the scores and rankings from PISA are not important and that they cannot give policy makers or educators meaningful insights into student preparedness for the global economy.
