OECD PISA 22 results for Aotearoa New Zealand are out

On Wednesday 6 December EPIT hosted the webinar launch of the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2022 Aotearoa New Zealand results.

We were fortunate to be joined from Paris by the OECD’s, Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills, who presented the latest survey data on the educational performance, well-being, and resilience of 15-year-olds in OECD member countries and partner economies.

The 2022 PISA assessment includes data on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which precipitated a range of national response measures that affected educational systems, student well-being and educational outcomes.  

Panel discussion with local representatives

Following the presentation, Andreas joined in a panel discussion with plenty of questions being asked.  Our panel comprised of local educators, those working with our young people, thought leaders, and policy makers:

Q&A Session sparks wide-ranging questions

Throughout the presentation, our attendees were invited to submit their thoughts and questions. These were then addressed by the panel, who were able to provide local contextual input. Below are some of the questions raised:

  • How do we close the gap to reduce the disadvantage? What strategies are other countries using?
  • In regards to PISA measuring real life skills, is this done as a written test in one language, or some other way?
  • Is it fair to say that jurisdictions with homogenous populations, including ethnicities and cultures, have less variation in student performance on PISA than jurisdictions with diverse populations?
  • Is motivation to be self directed an individualistic mindset? Should we actually challenge what self direction means away from only a personal responsibility to take into account collective world views?
