Pisa, the OECD's programme for global student assessment, measures 15-year-olds' ability to use their reading, mathematics and science knowledge and skills to meet real-life challenges. The OECD estimated that 30 points were equivalent to one-year of learning.

"However, the strength of the relationship between a student's socio-economic status and his or her performance varied greatly across countries and economies". "We have remained steady and so our ranking has improved-not exactly the way you want to improve your ranking".

Results from the 2018 OECD Programme for International Student Assessments (PISA) suggest that participating students in Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang in China, as well as Singapore, attained higher scores than students in the other 77 participating countries, * a href="*R004*R006*R007*R008*R095*R096*R003*R011*R012*R002*R009*R010*M000*M004*M006*M007*M008*M095*M096*M003*M011*M012*M002*M009*M010*S000*S004*S006*S007*S008*S095*S096*S003*S011*S012*S002*S009*S010*N058*N059*N017*N081*N288*N121*N123*N122*N125*N126*N206*N278*N282*N283*N004*N005*N164*N276*N190*N284*N285*N286*N275*N287*N289*N213*N277*N273*N274*R019*R053*R054*R055*R056*R057*R058*R061*R062*R063*R064*R065*R066*R073*R074*R075*R026*R052*R097*N011*N128*N279*N280*N281*N090*X019*X020*X021*X022*X023*X025*X026*X027*X028*X029*X030*X031" target="_blank" *according to the OECD.

Meanwhile, England's average score for reading was similar to Scotland and Northern Ireland, and all three had scores "significantly higher" than Wales.

In math, the USA average score on the PISA (478) was lower than the OECD average score (489).

The national average reading score was 503.

On average, 15-year-olds score 509 points in mathematics compared to an average of 489 points in OECD countries.

"On a scale of 0 to 1,000, average scores in science literacy across the education systems ranged from 590 points in B-S-J-Z (China) to 336 points in the Dominican Republic", NCES noted.

"Reading proficiency is essential for a wide variety of human activities - from following instructions in a manual; to finding out the who, what, when, where and why of an event; to communicating with others for a specific goal or transaction", said OECD. "It's comparable to NAEP's below basic".

"The findings also showed that students only read when they are forced to, or for a specific reason, not as an interest".

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

"There were also improvements among high-achieving and low-achieving students".

The major focus of the 2018 PISA tests was reading and the New Zealand results showed a gender gap of 29 points in favour of girls, down from 46 points in 2009.

The maths skills of Australian students have slid back at least a year compared to their worldwide counterparts, a new report says.

Singapore came in second in all three subjects covered in the study - reading, mathematics and science, losing its previous top spots to China, which did not make the top five in 2015. "In Sweden, 10 percent of immigrant students performed at that level", notes the report.
