  16. Equipment – Computers • The successful implementation of the surveyreliesheavilyon school computers used to administer the test. • Computers need to be tested by means of a special software, in order to establish that they can run the test. • If a small additional number of computers is needed:use of laptops • If a considerable additional number of computers is needed:administration of the assessment on two days, rather than one • The cooperation of IT teachers is very important: • a) for the prompttestingof computers and the submission of reliable data • b) for thesmooth administrationon the day of the assessment PISA 2015 Cyprus National Centre

  17. The School’s role and responsibilities By 6th December 2013 the school must assign: a) School Coordinator b) IT teacher (responsible for the technical tests) A circular will be sent to schools shortly, which will describe the process of submittingthe names/contact details of the SC and the IT teacher, along with instructions for the next steps of the procedure. Computer skills/email. Teaching one of the subjects tested. Personal interest, Organizing skills. Good interpersonal skills. Not necessarily a deputy head.

  22. The School’s role – Principal’s support Day of the assessment • Clear (…and strict) instructions to students with regards to the procedures and timing on the day of the assessment • Supervision by members of staff • Strict (common) policy on: a) break time arrangements and b) early completion of the test • Use of mobile phones • Providing supportive material (e.g. stationery, calculators, literature books, magazines) PISA 2015 Cyprus National Centre

  23. The School’s role – Principal’s support Day of the assessment • It is extremely important to achieve a high attendance / participation rate, on the day of the assessment • If too many students are absent on the day of the assessment this will result to: a) organizing a follow-up test for the school, b)the removal of the school’s data from the country’s data file • Low participation rates cause serious problems, especially if they do not meet the technical standards of the Programme.

  25. Released MaterialSamples of publicized test items http://www.pisa.oecd.org ‘What PISA produces?’

  26. Using released material Problems: a) There is no released material available in the new electronic format of PISA 2015 b) To date, there are no sample exercises of Cooperative Problem Solving (new domain) However, using the released material is EXTREMELY useful, since it allows students to familiarize themselves with the content and the nature of PISA questions. a) Teachers should be advised to use at least one exercise, per month, per subject, with their students. b) Students should be encouraged to practice with the released material, in their free time.
