Education » Estonian students' PISA performance scores: Estonian students' PISA performance scores by assessment area and language of instruction

Estonian students' PISA performance scores by assessment area (mathamtics, science, reading) and proficiency levels (total 7).

OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an internationally standardised assessment that was jointly developed by participating countries and administered to 15-year-olds in schools. PISA assesses how far students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. In all cycles, the domains of reading, mathematical and scientific literacy are covered not merely in terms of mastery of the school curriculum, but in terms of important knowledge and skills needed in adult life.
