detaild on all personal questions asked for the PISA program

Paul Miller made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Education

The request was successful.

From: Paul Miller

Delivered

Dear Department of Education,

Recently my son was taken away from his normal school activities for an extended period of time to do the PISA testing
As his parent I was not consulted or sought for consent for his participation, my wife and I just received a brochure the day before he was taken for the testing
my son informed me that a number of personal questions were asked as part or the testing
This was distressing for us and my son
I have since been to the website listed in the brochure seeking further information without full satisfaction
I would like to see a copy all personal questions that were put to my son for the OZPISA Project not necessarily academic or samples of test questions

Yours faithfully,
Paul Miller
