The PISA 2015 assessment of financial literacy was the second of its kind. Fifteen countries and economies participated in the 2015 assessment
Financial literacy was assessed through a computer-based test. Students assessed in financial literacy also completed the assessments of mathematics, reading and science. Test questions were a mixture of multiple-choice questions and those requiring students to construct their own responses. The items were organised in groups based on a passage setting out a real-life situation. Students who sat the assessment of financial literacy also answered questions about their experience with money, as well as the PISA student questionnaire about themselves, their homes, and their school and learning experiences. School principals completed a questionnaire that covered the school system and the learning environment. Fifteen countries and economies participated in the 2015 assessment, including 10 OECD countries and economies: Australia, the Flemish Community of Belgium, seven provinces in Canada (British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Prince Edward Island), Chile, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the Slovak Republic, Spain and the United States; and five partner countries and economies: Brazil, four provinces/municipalities in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Guangdong), Lithuania, Peru and the Russian Federation. Eight countries/economies participated in both the 2012 and 2015 assessments: Australia, the Flemish Community of Belgium, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation, the Slovak Republic, Spain and the United States.
