Abstract

Drawing on data from the OECD's Programme for International Assessment (PISA), which assesses mathematical literacy and other domains among 15-year olds in over 70 countries every three years, this paper explores the extent to which PISA outcomes in 2015 can be described as 'solid' and hence contribute to evidence-based decision making. It identifies aspects of PISA that render its findings 'solid', but also points to pitfalls that arise in interpreting PISA outcomes related to achievement. The paper concludes by examining how PISA can contribute to thinking about the nature of evidence-based findings in mathematics education.
