Abstract

The 2015 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) results have been released - and on first glance, it does not look good for Australia. On global comparisons, Australia performed equal 10th in science (down from 8th in 2012), 20th in maths (down from 17th) and 12th in reading (down from 10th). There is a steady decline in the results since 2000, both in terms of overly simple international comparisons and absolute mean scores.
