Organizations conducting international large-scale assessments (ILSAs), such as PISA and TIMSS, rely on the media to disseminate the results. Ex¬amination of the nature of media coverage of ILSAs is limited, however. The paper presents a multi-country analysis of media coverage of OECD-PISA 2012. Using a standardized protocol and samples of news articles from 20 countries, we show how newspapers reduce the complexity of ILSAs into a simple story of international competition. The paper also documents that the findings in subject areas such as the IEA’s civic education studies rarely receive attention from journalists. These studies rely on the initial reports and also on secondary analysis of their data disseminated through channels such as scholarly journal articles. We consider the balance between these approaches as ways to engage the public, educators and education policy makers using the concept of communities of practice.
Keywords: International assessments; education journalists; mathematics education; science education; civic education; IEA; OECD.
