The secret of Finland’s success in PISA

New website launched.

The secret of Finland’s success in PISA The Centre for Educational Assessment at the University of Helsinki is responsible for implementing OECD’s PISA (The Programme for International Student Assessment) in Finland. Finland has fared extremely well in previous PISA rounds (2000 and 2003). The success has generated increasing worldwide interest in Finland and the Finnish educational system.

The website’s address is www.pisa2006.helsinki.fi.

The content of the website is the responsibility of the Centre for Educational Assessment at the University of Helsinki (www.helsinki.fi/cea/).
