PISA results rank BC students among the best in the world

On December 6, 2016, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development released the 2015 results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). PISA is a triennial international survey which aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students. In 2015, over half a million students, representing 28 million 15-year-olds in 72 countries and economies, took the internationally-agreed two-hour test. Students were assessed in science, mathematics, reading, collaborative problem solving and financial literacy.

In science and reading, BC students scored above the national average placing them among the top-performing participants globally. Along with Denmark, Estonia and Hong Kong, Canada stands out for equality in student performance—an indicator of high equity in opportunities for education that directly relates to public schooling. And while PISA is only one, somewhat narrow, measurement of student and school success, the very positive results help demonstrate that BC and the rest of Canada are on the right track in terms of education programs.
