    Considering the low performance of Indonesian students in PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) survey in the period 2000-2012, the need of PISA-like tasks promoting mathematical literacyis important to be developed as learning resource for practisioners. For these reasons, this study aims to produce a set of PISA-like mathematics tasks which are valid, practical, and has the potential effect as well as explain the process of developing those tasks. Thus, we used the preliminary stages, and prototyping using formative evaluation (self evaluation, expert review, one-to-one, small group, and field test). A total of 67 students of senior high school students at Palembang and 12 experts were involved in the prototyping phase. Data collection techniques used are walkthrough, documentation, questionnaire, test results, and interviews. This study produced a set PISA-like math tasks as many as 12 items in the category of content, context, and process. The validity came from the experts who reviewed the prototype at this stage, while the practicality, particularly, obtained from the revised tasks in the steps of both ‘one-to-one’and ‘small group’. From the field test, we conclude that the tasks also potentially effect to the students’ mathematical literacy in activating the indicators of each FMC, i.e, communication, reasoning and argumentation, representation, mathematising, problem solving, and using formal/symbolic language and the students’ interest and seriousness when solving the tasks
