“Greek PISA” Αssessment Τests to Βe Ηeld on Wednesday

ΑΤΗΕΝS – The assessment tests in Modern Greek and Mathematics, otherwise known as the “Greek PISA” (Programme for International Student Assessment)” will be held on Wednesday. A total of 6,000 students in the 6th grade of primary school and the 3rd grade of high school from 600 schools (300 primary and 300 high schools) in the country will participate.

The exams, according to the education ministry, “aim at a valid and reliable diagnosis of the knowledge, abilities and skills of our students, according to the expected learning outcomes.”

The subjects include the basic knowledge that students must have acquired in elementary and high school and are familiar, the ministry explained.

The purpose of assessment tests is to “improve the education system based on specific data. We will find out what the students have learned, what they have understood well from the textbooks and what is difficult for them. Based on this information, we will proceed to make interventions in matters of both teaching methodology and the curriculum.”

Participation in the exams is mandatory, but the results will be collected anonymously and will not count toward the students’ grades.


Alexandros Kachrimanis is the Regional Governor of Epirus, one of Greece’s most important and beautiful – but perhaps least known regions.
