The National Education Council in Portugal, is hosting an international conference on Beyond PISA results, which will bring together delegates together to discuss how the information gathered by the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) may help identify the critical components of education systems and inform public policies that may bring quality and equity to the systems.

At this conference, Cambridge Assessment’s Director of Assessment Research and Development, Tim Oates CBE, will be one of the speakers and he will be discussing PISA: myths and accuracy.

More information about the conference and how to register can be found on the National Education Council website.

In autumn 2015, Dr Tom Benton, Principal Research Officer, Cambridge Assessment, presented his research on Attitudes to learning – questioning the PISA data at the Cambridge Assessment's Gender Differences conference.
