|Title:||OECD's PISA, Media Sensationalism, and Education Reform in Japan||Contributor(s):||Takayama, Keita (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11014||Abstract:||The OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), conducted every three years, has become a major event shaping education policy in many of the participating nations. The PISA report provides a comprehensive set of comparative data on 15 year old students' performance, but its national rankings based on mean test scores in particular attract the most attention. Various policy actors use the rankings to affirm or scandalize ongoing education reform. The media is one of the key actors determining PISA rankings' domestic impact, as they interpret them for the public.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Asia Pacific Memo||Publisher:||Institute of Asian Research (IAR) at The University of British Columbia (UBC)||Place of Publication:||Vancouver, Canada||Field of Research (FOR):||130199 Education systems not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.asiapacificmemo.ca/pisa-media-japan||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 157
