Agora Lledó achieves better results than the highest-ranked OECD country in the PISA tests
Agora Lledó International School’s students achieved some outstanding results in the PISA tests this year, obtaining a score significantly higher than the Spanish average and even beating Japan, who was the highest ranked country in PISA’s last report.
Spanish schools will continue to carry out the tests until 31 July 2018 for inclusion in PISA’s 2019 report. The schools involved in the testing programme are selected at random but any school can participate should they choose to do so. The PISA tests are administered by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) and provide a reliable performance indicator for students aged 15 across an international spectrum. Schools from more than 70 countries participate in the programme, representing nine tenths of the world’s economy. The tests measure academic performance in Mathematics, Science and Literacy.
Agora Lledó International School obtained an average score of 550, higher than Japan, the highest-ranked OECD country, with an average score of 529, and significantly higher than the Spanish average of 492. Our Mathematics results were particularly strong with a score of 573, in comparison to Japan’s score of 532, and again well above the Spanish average at 486 and the OECD country average of 490.
Our thanks and congratulations go to our incredibly hard working and talented students and teachers for these excellent and well-deserved results!
