PISA survey

Published in late 2013, the fifth Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) comparative survey conducted by the OECD revealed that for the first time schoolchildren in Germany were well above the OECD ­average in all subjects. Among other things, this success is thanks to the ­extensive measures taken by the Federal Government and the states to improve education. The next PISA survey will be  published in late 2016.
