THE PERCEPTIONS OF ISRAELI TEACHERS TOWARDS PISA- INTERNATIONAL TEST

Prof. Sara Zamir, Dr. Yael Cohen-Azaria

ABSTRACT

PISA test is a comparative international large-scale test which was founded and edited by OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development). This test measures the achievements of pupils aged 15 in approximately 80 countries worldwide.
This study examined the perceptions of teachers in Israel towards PISA. The study have found that many teachers are ignorant of the nature and objectives of PISA. It is evident that the teachers are outside the circle of action associated with PISA.
Hence, the main conclusion of the study is that all interested parties, academics, teachers and administrators alike, must operate in reciprocity in order to shape the future character of the education system's graduate. This will not only change the Israeli education system's achievements but also may improve the face of future society.
