Performance of U.S. 15-Year-Old Students in Reading, Mathematics, and Science Literacy in an International Context

The report, Highlights From PISA 2009: Performance of U.S. 15-Year-Old Students in Reading, Mathematics, and Science Literacy in an International Context, published by the U.S. Department of Education, was brought to the Center’s attention by Industry Advisory Board member, Ryan Collier.

From the report: “The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international assessment that measures the performance of 15-year-olds in reading literacy, mathematics literacy, and science literacy. Coordinated by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), an intergovernmental organization of 34 member countries, PISA was first implemented in 2000 and is conducted every 3 years. PISA 2009 was the fourth cycle of the assessment.”

Note: “Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental organization of 34 member countries. In all, 60 countries and 5 other education systems participated as partners in PISA 2009.”
