Preparations for PISA 2025 are moving into the next round: this summer, all PISA participating countries will have the opportunity to submit their own draft tasks for the main domain 2025. For this purpose, two members of the national project management attended the International Itemdevelopment Workshop in Vienna from June 20-22, 2022, in which a total of 18 people from different countries and four organizers of the international contractor took part.

The first part of the accompanying study PISA-Ceco has started with the processing of the online teacher survey. We would like to thank all PISA mathematics and science teachers for participating in this part of the accompanying study. In preparation for the second part of PISA-Ceco, PISA-Ceco test administrators were trained in digital workshops. The structured trainings ensure a standardized procedure of the PISA-Ceco classroom visits which will start at the end of May 2022.

As part of a pilot study of PISA-Ceco, an article on supporting student motivation through tasks was published in Zeitschrift für Erziehungswissenschaften. The article describes the development and validation of a coding scheme that can be used to describe the motivational potential of tasks and thus contribute to optimizing motivation-supportive instructional designs. The study shows that in current German ninth grade mathematics and physics textbook tasks the possibilities for promoting student motivation remain unexploited.

From 04.04.-31.05.2022 the PISA tests will take place in the approx. 270 participating schools throughout Germany. As a rule, four test sessions with 15 students each are planned per school. A total of around 950 test sessions will take place. We would particularly like to highlight the great cooperation with the schools, which are especially burdened due to the current situation. A heartfelt thank you for your work!

In preparation for the PISA main study, PISA test administrators were trained in digital workshops. The structured trainings ensure a standardized process for the PISA testing day. The data collection of the PISA main study starts in April 2022. The virtual school information sessions with the school coordinators as well as school principals and interested teachers of the participating schools are also completed. There the schools received information about the PISA study, the procedure of the testing day as well as the accompanying study PISA-Ceco.
