The Department of Education (DepEd), through the Bureau of Education Assessment (BEA), will administer the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2022 Main Survey, pursuant to DepEd Order No. 29, s. 2017 titled, Policy Guidelines on System Assessment in the K to 12 Basic Education Program.
The goal of PISA is to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students who are approaching the end of their compulsory education. PISA tests how students can apply their knowledge and skills to real-life situations and problems, rather than testing their knowledge recall. The three core domains of PISA are Reading Literacy, Scientific Literacy, and Mathematical Literacy. In PISA 2022, the major domain of assessment is Mathematical Literacy and Creative Thinking as the innovative domain.
PISA 2022 Main Survey in the Philippines will be administered as a Computerbased Assessment (CBA) from March 28 to May 20, 2022.
The list of the sample schools and test schedules are communicated directly to the concerned regional offices and school division offices to maintain the confidentiality and anonymity of the participants.
The implementation of the PISA 2022 Main Survey is a face-to-face school-based activity. The conduct of such activities has already been previously approved by the Office of the President, provided that the necessary public health standards jointly agreed by DepEd and DOH will be complied with.
Sampled learners are allowed to participate in all PISA-related activities, regardless of their vaccination status, provided that all applicable COVID-19 health and safety protocols stipulated in DepEd-DOH Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, s. 2021 and the PISA National Center Survey Operations Plan 2022 are strictly adhered to.
