Just in case you missed it,  the results of the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) assessments were released on December 16.

CMEC is responsible for  Canadian participation and their press release is very positive about Canadian results. From the press release:

“The Canadian results from PISA 2015 are a success story for provincial education systems:

  • Canadian 15-year-olds placed well above the OECD average and remain among the top performers in science. Of the 72 countries and economies participating in the assessment, only three —Singapore, Japan, and Estonia—outperformed Canada.
  • Close to 90 per cent of Canadian students performed at or above Level 2 in science, which is the baseline level of proficiency required to take advantage of further learning opportunities and participate fully in modern society. The OECD average was only 79 per cent.
  • In mathematics and reading, Canada was also one of the top performers: only one country—Singapore—surpassed Canada in reading, and only six countries and economies performed better in mathematics.”

The Canadian report can be found at www.pisacan.ca. The OECD report can be accessed at www.oecd.org/pisa/. Check out this international map  a quick tool allowing you to compare results by country by subject -math,  science or reading, as well as gender, social background, immigration.
