(available from April 19, 2017 11:00)

PISA 2015 Results (Volume III) explores a comprehensive set of well-being indicators for adolescents that covers both negative outcomes (e.g. anxiety, low performance) and the positive impulses that promote healthy development (e.g. interest, engagement, motivation to achieve).


PISA 2015 Results (Volume II) -  Policies and Practices for Successful Schools

Volume II, Policies and Practices for Successful Schools, examines how student performance is associated with various characteristics of individual schools and school systems, including the resources allocated to education, the learning environment and how school systems select students into different schools, programmes and classes.

PISA 2015 Results (Volume I) - Excellence and Equity in Education

Volume I, Excellence and Equity in Education, summarises student performance in science, reading and mathematics, and defines and measures equity in education. It focuses on students’ attitudes towards learning science, including their expectations of working in science-related careers. The volume also discusses how performance and equity have evolved across PISA-participating countries and economies over recent years.
