The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2025 has science as the major domain, reading and mathematics as the minor domains, and learning in the digital world as the innovative domain. Over 80 countries are participating in PISA 2025. As in previous cycles, Canada’s participation consists of all 10 provinces.

PISA is an online assessment, and it consists of a two-hour test and a 35- to 45-minute student questionnaire. A contextual questionnaire will be administered to school principals.

The PISA 2025 field test will be administered between April 22 and May 31, 2024. Approximately 5,800 15-year-old students selected at random from 110 schools across all 10 provinces will participate in the assessment.

Further information about PISA can be found on the OECD website.
