During the event, the Minister of Education, Yaneth Giha Tovar, said: “A child moves forward when all his or her capabilities are addressed in a comprehensive manner. If Colombia wants to continue advancing, it has to keep betting on quality; and a way of realizing how we are doing is through tests like PISA.“
The Minister stressed that this work is done in collaboration with CSF, Claro Colombia, the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI), the Colombian Institute for the Evaluation of Education (ICFES) and the Computers for Education Program.
Additionally, Minister Giha Tovar highlighted the importance that all the schools and students of the country have access and free of charge to PruébaT platform, which will allow them to become familiar with the digital environment of tests such as PISA.
