This study is about the neoliberalisation process within education, the process that also is called the marketisation of education. I have seen the process from a historical, political, economic, ideological and theoretical perspective, and used the PISA research to show the role of standardised tests in the marketisation process. I have chosen the metaphor The Wheel to illustrate this process; thus I have experienced the present development within the education sector as evolving, from a tiny movement in the beginning until the present where “everybody” moves in the same direction at high speed. The hub is the metaphor used for standardised tests. My research question asks whether standardised tests might be seen as the pivot in the marketisation of education, if they might act as the Hub in the Wheel.To answer this question, I have conducted a critical discourse analysis of purposive picked documents. Own experiences, information from the media, at conferences, seminars and meetings, among people active in social movements and teachers working in the classroom has guided me in the search of suitable documents.The study shows a number of parallels between the development within the economic and education sector. My findings indicate that standardised tests are important to the neoliberalisation process within the education sector. To make substantial conclusions, however, becomes more difficult the more one learns. A vehicle has more than one wheel, however not all are connected to the drive or to the breaks. I hope this study, this bricolage, shows that standardised tests are connected to the drive, and that to question them might lead to the release of some breaks.
