On March 31st 2021 we had to release Prof. Dr. Reiss into retirement. Through her competent management of 2.5 PISA cycles, she has played a decisive role in shaping educational monitoring in Germany. We thank her very much for that

At the same time, we are pleased to welcome Prof. Dr. Lewalter as the new Director of the PISA National Center and as Chairwoman of the Board of the ZIB. We are looking forward to work together in PISA 2022 and beyond.


A first feasibility study on foreign language competence (Foreign Language Assessment) is currently being conducted at the ZIB location in Munich.
The BMBF and KMK will decide at a later stage whether Germany will participate in the survey of foreign language competence as part of the PISA survey 2025.
