The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has chosen Educational Testing Service (ETS) to manage and develop the 2018 cycle of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA.) PISA results are used by educators and policymakers worldwide to evaluate and improve their educational systems and promote learning. ETS will be responsible for overall project management including survey design, test development, operations and quality control, expansion of the computer platform, as well as data processing, scaling and analysis. The work for the 2018 cycle began in July 2014 and runs through September 2020. ETS will collaborate with, and coordinate the work of, three other core contractors. For the 2015 cycle, ETS is responsible for building and delivering the computer platform upon which the tests will be delivered as well as a communication portal for sharing project information and coordinating project activities with participating countries and the OECD. In addition, the company developed new cognitive assessments of Scientific Literacy and Collaborative Problem Solving, as well as adapting existing trend items in Reading, Mathematics, Science and Financial Literacy for computer delivery.
