PISA testing for Savremena’s students

PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is an international assessment measuring student performance in reading, mathematical and scientific literacy, aimed at enabling the students to apply their skills in tests comprising multiple disciplines.

This test includes areas such as natural sciences, writing, mathematics and innovative subjects including collaborative problem solving and financial literacy.

The test is in English and measures the students’ performance so as to provide them with guidelines for their further education and career. In addition, it is designed to bring together 15-year-olds and teach them to work and communicate in a team. Finally, the students with the best performance in the test are selected and given the opportunity to use their potential and knowledge. 

The aim of this survey is to encourage countries to learn from each other.

Learn how:

  • PISA measures the seven levels of proficiency in science;
  • Scientific questions are classified into categories in order to provide different context and test various skills. 

If you wish, you can test your knowledge with the PISA 2015 Test Questions.

About PISA

The PISA survey is the leading instrument for the evaluation of the quality, fairness and efficiency of education systems, whose results show the students’ functional knowledge and provide guidelines for the areas which require improvement in order to achieve the desired standards. The results also show how the students’ knowledge ranks among more than 200 countries participating in this international study.

The survey itself is organised under the patronage of OECD and Serbia is part of this project on account of the decision made by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
