The Centre for Educational Assessment was established in 1996 to develop an instrument for measuring learning to learn as the foundation for lifelong learning. Today, the work of the Centre for Educational Assessment covers a variety of issues related to educational research and development. It works in collaboration with schools and municipalities in the fields of educational assessment, research and development. The results of assessment are utilized for monitoring and further developing education in classrooms and at school and municipal level. Since the late 1990s, the Centre for Educational Assessment has been active in transnational collaboration within the European Union for developing a common indicator for learning to learn. The Centre for Educational Assessment was also responsible for the implementation of PISA 2006 in Finland.
