Politicians irked by sealed OECD tests

A non-government majority has already begun planning a PISA conference aimed at closer examination of the tasks that Danish schoolchildren were given in connection with a recent OECD report. The OECD, meanwhile, is refusing to release the contents of the

"We recycle many of the student tasks to allow participating countries to track student progress, which therefore necessitates keeping some of the assignments off limits. Selected portions of the tasks are available, along with descriptions of the theoretical basis, on our website, and together those things should give a pretty good indication of the methods," said the chief administrator of OECD's education indicator, Andreas Schleicher, speaking with Danish newspaper Information.

The OECD's PISA student aptitude test gave lacklustre marks to Danish public school students, sparking political calls for key reforms to the Danish education system.

The Radical Liberals are nonetheless adamant that the original PISA tests must be reviewed.

"Given the kind of far-reaching changes to the public school system that the government is about to make, we need to know the full background. We want a thorough review of the (PISA) report, and the tasks assigned for the test are a factor that needs to be weighed in understanding how our students were evaluated," Radical Liberal education spokeswoman Margrethe Vestager told the newspaper.
