The PISA 2022 Creative Thinking Assessment: Thinking Outside the Box

By enabling the interpretation of experiences, actions, and events in fresh and personally relevant ways, creative thinking can positively impact students' academic interest and accomplishment, identity, and socioemotional development.

Students who use creative thinking can better adjust to a world that is changing quickly and continuously outside of the classroom. To address new and complex challenges, organizations and societies around the world are growing increasingly dependent on innovation and knowledge creation, making it urgent for creativity and innovation to be collective endeavors. Supporting students' creative thinking can help them to contribute to the development of the society they live in today and as future workers.
