Challenging PISA’s hegemony

  • Date:
  • Time: 12:30-14:00
  • Location: Coach House, Hillary Place

For our first seminar of the academic year, we welcome Professor Paul Andrews from Stockholm University. He will present a series of little known facts about PISA, its processes and results, challenging its repeated claim that it “has become the world’s premier yardstick for evaluating the quality, equity and efficiency of school systems” (OECD, 2013, p.3, OECD, 2016, p.3).

Paul is a colleague of Judy Sayers (CCPP) on the Foundational Number Sense (FoNS) project, and specialises in comparative mathematics education research.
