Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is done every three years by OECD to measure how well 15-year-olds worldwide make use of their knowledge to solve problems.

Further, the country obtained an average score of 353 in science and 357 in mathematics.

Among OECD countries, 67 percent of students reported being satisfied with their lives, down 5 percentage points from 2015. "We have remained steady and so our ranking has improved-not exactly the way you want to improve your ranking". Last year, teens from about 80 nations participated.

The OECD average was 487 in reading, and 489 in mathematics and science.

"Results from PISA indicate the quality and equity of learning outcomes attained around the world, and allow educators and policy makers to learn from the policies and practices applied in other countries", said OECD.

On a scale of 0 to 1,000, average scores in reading literacy across the education systems ranged from 555 in B-S-J-Z (China) to 340 in the Philippines. Ireland, Finland, Canada, and Estonia led western countries in test scores. "Between 2000 and 2009, England plummeted down the Pisa rankings".

The national average reading score was 503. And in mathematics, Thais scored 419 points, well below the OECD average of 489 points.

Mr Sng Chern Wei, MOE's deputy director-general of education (curriculum), said the findings suggest students are "a bit anxious about not doing well in different parts of school life, and anxious about how others view them when they experience setbacks". "It's comparable to NAEP's below basic".

Depending on your behavior, it can be determined whether or not you are using exam dumps and if so, penalties will be imposed. As you can see the retake policy is a bit lenient, but it is still wise to make sure that you pass at the first attempt.

The study also showed that 60 per cent of Singapore students had a growth mindset, which means they believe intelligence can change with application of effort.

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called the NAEP results "frankly devastating".

The survey suggested that interventions should be made to the students of countries, like the Philippines, where relationship between a student's socio-economic status and performance is strong.

The PISA results will be high on the agenda when state and federal ministers meet at a Education Council meeting in Alice Springs next week.

The tests and survey conducted in 2018 also indicated New Zealand students' well-being had worsened, with one-in-five reporting they did not feel safe at school, more students saying they felt lonely, and more complaining of disorder in their classrooms.

In both reading and math, the top 10 percent of students have performed significantly better since 2012.

In reading, for example, 14 percent of USA students performed at the highest two proficiency levels in 2018, 4 percentage points more than in 2015. Almost a quarter of students reported being bullied a few times a month and 6 percent reported often feeling sad. The lowest-performing students gained ground only in science.

The assessment also noted that cooperation among students is more prevalent than competition between them and that 23 percent of students reported being bullied at least a few times each month on average at schools across the OECD's member countries.
