CALL FOR PAPERS – INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS PISA

14th-15th May 2020
Auditório Professor José Araújo | Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Lisboa – Portugal

On May 14 and 15, 2020, the Lusófona University, in Lisbon, hosts the International Congress A success story? PISA, large-scale assessment and educational change. The event, organized by the Centro de Estudos Interdisciplinares em Educação e Desenvolvimento (CeiED), is part of the activities of the research project funded by the FCT- Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (PTDC / CED-EDG / 30084/2017). A success story? Portugal and the PISA (2000-2015).

The entire academic, educational, and potential interested community is invited to submit papers on one of the four thematic axes of the Congress, noting that the deadline for submission of a communication proposal and poster is March 31, 2020.

CONGRESS THEME

Major international studies, such as PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study), PIRLS (Progress in International Reading Literacy Study) or TALIS (Teaching and Learning International Survey), although recent in their implementation, have become one of the key governance technologies in the fields of education and training, influencing policy makers, school managers and the media.

In line with the increase in the countries participating in these surveys, the number of organizations responsible for their operation, management and implementation has also grown and now includes an extensive network of public and private actors, including the OECD, IEA, SACMEQ, UNESCO, and the World Bank.

This dimension of global governance, in its role of educational policy and international mediator of knowledge and articulated with the exercise of a particular type of regulation, has nevertheless been questioned by a vast international critical literature.

In this general context, the Congress proposes the analysis and discussion of the theme of large-scale international evaluations in relation to educational change.

CONGRESS THEMATIC AXES

Proposals for participation in the Congress must be framed in one of the following themes:

  • Big Science, Big Data and the International Surveys on Education
  • The influence of the surveys (PISA, TIMSS and PIRLS) on teacher education, examinations and school practices
  • Literacy, PISA and Education Policy Regulation
  • Media agenda and stakeholder discourse on PISA
