This chapter examines the public law approach to the use of global governance indicators. The discussion is based on German public law thinking and theories of public law beyond the state. It studies the proposal that the spread of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) evaluations and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) rankings should be described in legal terms, thus making it a ‘national policy assessment.’ It determines that the NPAs of the OECD are subject to public law requirements, and that the producers of NPAs are required to cite reasons for specific actions, to maintain independence from national governments, and to respond duly to criticism.

Keywords:   public law approach, public law thinking, theories of public law, Programme for International Student Assessment, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, national policy assessment
