How is PISA carried out internationally?

PISA is overseen by the OECD Education Secretariat.  All major aspects of PISA are agreed upon by the PISA Governing Board, on which all countries are represented. In each country, National Project Managers oversee the administration of PISA.

PISA 2018 and PISA 2022 were implemented at international level by a consortium institutions, led by The Educational Testing Service, USA.

PISA 2025 will be implemented by the Australian Council for Education Research (ACER).
