The Honourable Karl Samuda, CD
Minister Without Portfolio
Welcome to Jamaica’s official website for the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). The Ministry, and by extension Jamaica, is pleased to participate in the 2021 cycle of PISA. We are positive that our participation in such an esteemed programme will equip policy makers in this country to garner useful and relevant information to shape the way forward for our education system.
It is indeed true that anything is possible with PISA, as several countries have been able to use the data they obtained from their participation to effect the necessary change for education reform. We have no doubt that our students, parents, teachers and all administrators will partner with us and use this website as a tool to access relevant information. Thank you for visiting the website, best wishes and God bless you all.
The Honourable Alando Terrelonge
Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information
Thank you for visiting the official website for the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), specially developed by the MoEYI to provide in-depth information to students, parents and teachers. The Ministry has observed the changes taking place around the globe in information and communication technology, and believes that no child should be left behind in these advancements. Through the infusion of these innovations in teaching and learning, we seek to stress the relevance of technology, as well as focus on the different learning types of students.
The website allows the use access to sample questions and reports from previous PISA cycles, videos, audio and written content for students, teachers, and parents. There is also a section specifically for Frequently Asked Questions, which will clarify questions that you want answered about PISA, as well as the important dates for key implementation activities. “We have danced a yard, now Jamaica will dance abroad!” Join with us as we evaluate our education system and show the world what Jamaicans can do.
