In contrast to NAEP and TIMSS, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) in the area of mathematics has received little or no attention within the U.S. mathematics education community, beyond noting that the performance of U.S. students is mediocre compared to that of students in many other countries in Asia and Europe. A consequence of the lack of attention to PISA in the U.S. is that we have underutilized a potentially valuable source of information for improvement of mathematics education. In this project the investigators explore the feasibility of transforming PISA into a usable resource for American mathematics educators by creating resources for use in teacher education settings.
