ACTNext’s Sr. Director for Advanced Psychometrics, Dr. Gunter Maris & Sr. Director of Learning Solutions, Dr. Yigal Rosen will be leading the way for developing a creative thinking assessment for OECD’s PISA study

ACT announced that the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has chosen ACT to lead in developing a creative thinking assessment for the use of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2021.

“We are thrilled and honored that OECD has placed its trust in ACT to develop this new assessment for the internationally respected PISA,” said ACT CEO Marten Roorda. “Developing a creative thinking assessment will require true innovation, as there is currently no assessment in the market that provides a comprehensive measure of students’ abilities in this domain. We look forward to this challenge.”

ACTNext’s Dr. Gunter Maris, the senior director for Advanced Psychometrics & Dr. Yigal Rosen, senior director of Learning Solutions will lead the task development for the assessment. Additional ACTNext assistance includes Ben, Tobi, Kurt, and Matt.
