recite-6852--967746757-h0lxajWell the ‘big news’ this past week was all about the OECD international PISA test results from 2012. Well, the sky is falling! The usual simplistic solutions, blame game and over reaction is in full swing. In this post, I am not going to quote any excerpts, just link to a few blog posts – some are great at putting the results and the test into proper perspective.

First of all, links to PISA itself and to the Canadian results;

Some blog posts & articles;

Yong Zhao ; Diane Ravitch ; The Atlantic ; Quartz ; Joe Bower (he has a few posts on this); Will Richardson ; BBC (article on accuracy of PISA)
