How do Denmark's Pisa school results compare to other countries?

How do Denmark's Pisa school results compare to other countries?

Indonesian students only scored higher than their peers in the Philippines, who scored lowest among the 79 countries surveyed in reading and second-lowest in mathematics and science, according to the OECD.

Malaysia has improved its performance in the renowned Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) 2018.

More than one in ten (11%) of 15-year-olds in the Latvian school system said they were frequently bullied, 10% said they were regularly threatened by other students and 12% said they were physically assaulted "at least a few times each month".

Top 3 in all three categories for PISA 2018.

The improvement was attributed to the strong literacy foundation in primary schools and a focus on critical reading skills in the secondary curriculum, said MOE.

Australia ranked 16th in the world for reading, 29th in maths and 17th in science.

"Our students should be ranked among the best in the world".

The Republic of Ireland performed better than all United Kingdom countries in reading where it is ranked eighth in the world.

The report says the performance gap between New Zealand's rich and poor students had narrowed from 104 points in 2009 to 96 points past year, slightly higher than the OECD average of 89 points, and few students from poor backgrounds performed at the highest levels.

"The percentage of Malaysian students reading and searching for information online has increased significantly, and nearly equals the OECD average", he said.

The NSW performance in reading (493) and science (496) dropped more than anywhere else while maths (489) is also below the national average.

Amin said the difference in reading behaviour between boys and girls showed that 77 per cent of boys read only for the information needed compared to 58 per cent of girls reading for the same objective.

The maths skills of Australian students have slid back at least a year compared to their worldwide counterparts, a new report says.

In maths, Irish students ranked 16th in the OECD and 11th in the European Union, and, while on average, they scored ahead of their global counterparts, and there was also a decline in top performers. Tests were administered to about 600,000 students in 79 countries and regions.

Among the other findings in Pisa were that socio-economic background has a significant effect on pupil attainment.

The study has also exposed how Ireland is lagging behind the OECD in the use of technology in education, with students reporting that where it is used in class it is usually the teacher.

"Today they will find hundreds of thousands of answers to their questions online and it is up to them to figure out what is true and what is false, what is right and what is wrong", the Pisa report said.

Amin said the PISA 2018's survey on Malaysian students also noted that they do not enjoy reading as a hobby compared to the survey on students in PISA 2009.

Michael Johnston, the associate dean (academic) of Victoria University's School of Education, said classroom disruption could be partly to blame for New Zealand's position and he believed the teaching of reading in primary schools also needed more attention.
