    Argentina excluded from OECD PISA academic tests: information deemed “insufficient”

    In the 2015 PISA, 7,500 Argentine students participated from 238 different schools, but the results won’t be counted, the country has been excluded.

    Argentina has not been included in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s ranking of education quality because the information provided by the country was deemed insufficient. The OECD-designed PISA test evaluates the academic performance of 15-year-olds in 71 countries around the world in math, science and reading comprehension. It’s been conducted every three years since 2000.
