Accordingly, PISA, an international research program conducted by the OECD, which evaluates the knowledge and skills gained by 15-year-old students and is a three-year research program, is conducted to evaluate mathematical literacy, science literacy and reading skills of students attending formal education in 15-year-olds and to compare countries. .
Turkey is participating in the PISA survey since 2003. 41 countries in 2003, 57 countries in 2006, 65 countries in 2009 and 2012, and 72 countries in 2015 participated in the PISA survey. Today, 79 countries participated in the PISA 2018 survey.
PISA points up compared to 2015
Turkey's reading skills in the average score is 428 in 2015, 466 in 2018 rose to 38 percentage points. In 2015, the average math score increased from 420 to 454, up 34 points. Similarly, the average science score increased from 435 in 2015 to 468, up 43 points. In PISA 2018 results, where scores increased in all three areas compared to 2015, the greatest improvement was achieved in science literacy.
Turkey was the highest increase among OECD countries in mathematics and science scores
statistically significant increase in scores in all three areas in all OECD countries, Turkey was one of the three countries. In addition, Turkey, the first country in the highest increase math and science scores in OECD countries, the reading score was the second highest increase in the country.
The number of countries participating in the PISA 2018 survey, despite the increase according to the PISA 2015 survey took place in Turkey ranking countries rank higher in all three areas.
2015 PISA survey of reading skills in Turkey ranks 50th, 2018 rose to 40th place in the PISA survey. PISA 2015 mathematics literacy in Turkey ranks 50th in the survey, rose to 42 as the PISA 2018 survey.
The greatest improvement in science literacy
PISA 2015 survey in science literacy in Turkey ranks 54, rose to 39th place in the PISA 2018 survey. The greatest improvement in rankings was achieved in science literacy. Science literacy, which ranked at the lowest of the three domains in the PISA 2015 ranking, was ranked at the top of the three domains in the PISA 2018 survey.
According to PISA 2018 results, the scores of countries in the field of reading skills ranged from 340 to 555. The average score of 79 countries in this field was 453. Turkey among the countries that participated with 466 receives an average score above average in this area was ranked 40th.
According to PISA 2018 results, countries' scores in the field of mathematics literacy ranged between 325 and 591. The average score of 79 countries in this field was 459. Turkey among the countries participating in this area with the average score of 454 in 42nd place.
'Turkey's average math scores reached their highest level since 2003
The average math score Turkey's second country with the highest increase in reading scores in OECD countries has reached its highest level since 2003.
According to PISA 2018 results, the scores of countries in the field of science literacy were recorded between 336 and 590. The average score of 79 countries in this field was 458. Turkey among the countries that participated with 468 receives an average score above average in this area took place in the 39th. Thus, Turkey's average science score reached its highest level since 2006.
Student proportions at basic proficiency levels increased
The PISA survey measured different levels of competences in all three areas. When PISA 2018 results are compared with 2015 results, it is seen that the proportion of students in basic level skills has increased. The greatest improvement in proficiency levels was recorded in science literacy at a rate of 19.2 percent. rates of increase in the basic and upper levels of competence in all three areas is now pointed enter the improvement phase in Turkey's PISA survey.
