PISA is the major international study of pupil performance in which Scotland participates. PISA assesses the performance of 15-year-old pupils in maths, reading and science. The latest publication, PISA 2015, showed that:-

  • in maths, Scotland's performance was similar to the OECD average and similar to Scotland's performance in 2012.
  • in reading, Scotland's performance was similar to the OECD average and lower than Scotland's performance in 2012.
  • in science, Scotland's performance was similar to the OECD average and similar to Scotland's performance in 2012.
  • the gap between disadvantaged and less disadvantaged pupils for all three domains was similar compared to 2012, but the reduction between 2009 and 2012 was maintained.
