PISA 2025 of the OECD

The OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international comparative study that measures the competencies of 15-year-old students in the core areas of reading, mathematics and science at regular intervals. As part of the 2025 survey, there will be an additional questionnaire on students' familiarity with ICT. Furthermore, the Learning in the Digital World (LDW) module will address competencies that are essential for learning in a digital world.

Specifically, LDW will examine how students acquire knowledge and solve problems using computer tools in an iterative process through self-directed learning and scientific methods.

Appropriate skills and knowledge are necessary for social participation and success in the labour market in light of rapid technological change. PISA thus provides an important basis for steering the Swiss education system.

The measure helps prepare the Swiss education system and students for requirements and future challenges in the digital world.

The primary aim is to build and measure competences and to gain steering knowledge.

This is to be achieved by Switzerland participating in PISA 2025 and using the results as steering knowledge.

This benefits digital Switzerland because digital competences are becoming increasingly important during and after school and the school system and the students must meet these demands.

PISA is a project carried out jointly by the EDK and the Confederation.
