Andriele Ferreira Muri Leite Patrícia Ferreira Miranda Nathalie Loye About the authors


Collaborative problem-solving (CPS) is an extremely important competition in modern society and one of the most valued in this century . The Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) was the first educational large-scale assessment to include problem-solving to its framework. In this preliminary study, the results presented are limited to what has been published in the official reports. Here, we discuss these results in the light of specialized literature and describe Pisa’s 2015 CPS framework. Brazil was the 51th country in CPS skills among the 52 participants in Pisa 2015 and is placed in Level 1 of the performance scale. The socio-economic status, the variation within schools and the gender relate positively to the Brazilian performance in problem-solving.
