Abstract

This article provides a brief overview of progress in developing a new initiative called PISA for Development. It shows how the OECD and its partners are implementing this initiative in support of the Education 2030 agenda that is set within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and emphasizes the quality, equity, and measurement of learning outcomes for young children through to working adults. The world now faces a challenge to define global learning indicators that can be measured and tracked on a global scale over time. The paper argues that PISA is already helping to measure and improve learning outcomes in over 70 countries and, with the PISA for Development initiative, OECD and its partners are aiming to make it possible for a wider range of countries to participate in the assessment.
