Signing Up for the Global Test

If you are interested in signing up to participate in the next OECD Test for Schools, contact America Achieves or OECD for full details.

The cost of participating in the global test, set by current service provider CTB/McGraw-Hill, is $11,500 per school. This covers the administration of the international assessment in math, science and reading to approximately 85 randomly selected students and production of the detailed report, which is provided three or four months later.

America Achieves, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, is accessible at www.americaachieves.org/oecd. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, which manages the PISA, is available at http://www.oecd.org/pisa/aboutpisa/pisa-basedtestforschools.htm.

In 2012, America Achieves partnered with the OECD to pilot this assessment in 100 U.S. high schools. The assessment is available now to every high school in the nation.
