Summary/Abstract: The Knowledge and Policy (Know&Pol) international research project investigated the relationship between knowledge and policy within education and health sectors between 2006 and 2011 in 8 EU countries. This article briefly presents the results of the third phase of the research, which examined how the OECD’s PISA survey was received in six countries’ (French-speaking Belgium, France, Hungary, Portugal, Romania, and Scotland) national education policies. Here, instead of trying to put forward a comparison of the six cases, we have decided to outline each country’s “PISA profile” by highlighting specific factors that determined their reception strategy and basis for interpretation. We will also touch upon some of the major conceptual conclusions that the participating teams have drawn from their PISA research. Our objective with this article is to call attention to the rich material gained from a qualitative, sociological analysis of a supra-national instrument of public policy
