Sample Questions

PISA 2018 focused on reading. You can explore some of the 2018 computer-based, reading questions on the OECD website.

You can also find maths and science questions on the OECD website


All pupils and schools/colleges complete questionnaires. Some questions which were included in previous PISA studies allow comparisons over time, and new questions allow us to better understand pupils’ experiences of the main subject focus (which is maths in PISA 2022). The following links are the published student and school questionnaires from 2018.

There are additional questionnaires which countries can choose to participate in. Pupils in Scotland will be asked about their familiarity with ICT.
