Learn how this unique and easily managed assessment can provide you with valuable insight on your school culture, student beliefs and student performance. The OECD Test for Schools shows you how well your system is preparing students for success in today’s global marketplace
Northwest Evaluation Association™ (NWEA™) has partnered with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to be the official US Test Service Provider of the OECD Test for Schools. The test, based on the highly regarded international PISA assessment, provides school-level assessment of student achievement in math, science, and reading. The test also shows how well students can solve problems and apply critical thinking skills and provides insight into teacher-student relationships.
“I wanted to say once and for all that we’re preparing kids to be the best in the world.”

The OECD Test for Schools is not a high stakes test. It takes only about 3 hours of time and is administered online to a small sample of 15-year-old students to yield school-wide insights, not individual student results. This system-based assessment compares overall school performance to international benchmarks, while also collecting valuable information about school climate and student engagement. No other assessment provides this kind of useful data and insight!
School superintendents, principals, and district leadership who want to understand how their schools stack up against peer schools and how they can leverage the data to drive improvements in their schools.
