Arikan, Serkan; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Yagmur, Kutlay – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2017
Lower reading and mathematics performance of Turkish immigrant students as compared to mainstream European students could reflect differential learning outcomes, differential socioeconomic backgrounds of the groups, differential mainstream language proficiency, and/or test bias. Using PISA reading and mathematics scores of these groups, we…

Jones, Graham A. – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2005
In a real sense, PISA 2003 has touched the mathematics education community by stealth rather than by storm. Although PISA brings "baggage" commonly associated with international assessments, it takes some refreshing perspectives especially in the way that it envisions and assesses mathematical literacy. In this panel discussion we focus…

Bijou, Mohammed; Liouaeddine, Mariem – World Journal of Education, 2018
This study's objective is to examine school performance gaps according to gender on a global scale. After exploiting the data of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) of 2015, we can see inequalities of students' achievements between countries and within every country, by mobilizing a multilevel modelling. Resorting to this type…
