Are Low Performers Missing Learning Opportunities? PISA in Focus. No. 62
OECD Publishing
Although low performers should invest more time and effort in their studies, they seldom do. One reason is because they often feel that they get no return on their investment: more studying does not automatically lead to better marks in school. But with the right kind of in-school support, including creative and engaging mathematics-related activities, low performers might begin to develop an interest in mathematics and positive attitudes towards learning--both of which could propel them back to their books.
