Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international study conducted by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. This R package provides R friendly versions of the following four data sets:

  • Student results which include the student background questionnaire as well as the outcomes of the math, science, and reading assessments (data(pisa.student))
  • School results from the school questionnaire (data(pisa.school))
  • Parent results from the parent questionnaire (data(pisa.parent))
  • The detailed item results from the cognitive assessments (data(pisa.items))

Here are some useful resources for getting started with PISA:

The OECD allows for redistribution of their data as indicated in the Product License (this license is also included in the inst directory of the package). Please read and adhere to this license. This R package is provided as-is but every effort has been made to ensure that the quality of the included datasets are equivalent to that provided by OECD. The R data files were created from the original data files with the SPSS syntax files for proper data conversions.
