OECD Test For Schools Workshop
September 2014
Take an opportunity to look at the sample questions posted around the room
Outcomes
•
•
•
•
Develop a deeper understanding of the
OECD Test for Schools and the type of
questions tested
Identify strategies to “unpack” the school
report and understand various graphs
Engage in a data dialogue protocol to
analyze district data
Determine next steps and plan for the use of
By the Numbers
Work with the people at your table to
determine which number from the
number bank accurately completes
each statement.
The OECD Test for Schools was piloted in 2013 in 105 schools
across the US. There were 10 FCPS schools involved.
The age of the student who takes the assessment is 15.
The OECD Test for Schools data is comparable to existing
Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) scales.
The international PISA results are published every 3 years.
75 is the suggested minimum target number of students tested
at each school.
Average number of FCPS students at a school who
took the assessment in 2013-14 school year is 64.

For the OECD Test for Schools, students respond to approximately
2 hours of test questions in reading, mathematics and science and
answer a 30 minute student questionnaire that is an important
part of the assessment.
The total percentage of simple multiple choice items on the
mathematics, reading and science test 34% .
Besides the mean average score, schools receive information
about the percentage of students who performed in each of the 6
proficiency levels.
Predict the FCPS Mean Performance Scores for 2013:
Mathematics: 524
Science: 531
Why?



Provides student comparisons to same-age students
in the United States and internationally while
considering socioeconomic factors
Assesses critical thinking, problem-solving and
written communication skills
Offers insight into student attitudes and the
teaching and learning environment at your school

Mean score
Proficiency Levels
*For descriptors of the six Proficiency Levels see p. 37, 42 & 45
*Descriptors of each profile are located on p. 58 in your report

Data Dialogue Activity

What are some categories, patterns, or trends that are
emerging?

What is surprising or unexpected?

What are some inferences, explanations or conclusions we
might draw from data ?

What other data sources might we want to explore?
