PISA Test Questions

About one year before the main study, the PISA study will be field-tested to test the newly developed tasks in all participating countries. Based on the subsequent analyzes some tasks will be modified or excluded for the main study. Therefore, some of the published examples were only part of the field tests and were excluded from the main study. Nevertheless, they give a good impression of the design and the diversity of PISA tasks.
