Why international tests are wrong. – M. Stansbury

Standsbury, Meris. “Why international tests are wrong.”  eSchool News. March 2013.  Retrieved from: http://www.eschoolnews.com/2013/01/16/report-international-tests-severely-misrank-u-s-students/

The EPI report on the PISA scores which are used to rank countries shows that the scores are skewed and the United States is actually doing much better than the media reports.

The truth, says the report, is that—when comparing apples to apples in weighing U.S. student performance against that of other industrialized countries—U.S. students don’t rank 25th in math, but 10th; and in reading, the country is not 14th, but 4th.
