PISA Results

Canadian Education ranks among the best in the world

PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is a collaborative effort among member countries of the OECD (the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development). It is designed to provide international indicators of the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students and shed light on a range of factors that contribute to successful students, schools, education systems, and learning environments.

Information gathered through PISA enables a thorough comparative analysis of the performance of students near the end of their compulsory education. It also permits exploration of the ways that achievement varies across different social and economic groups, and the factors that influence achievement within and among countries. Students are tested on their skills and knowledge in three core learning areas: mathematics, reading, and science.

The international report 2012 shows Canadian students rank among the best in the world.
