About the report
Your report will include background information about the assessments and how the results were obtained, along with guidance on how to interpret your school’s results. Because the participating 15-year-old students will have been randomly sampled, you will be able to generalise the results in your report to the whole population of 15-year-olds in your school.
The report will explore relationships between assessment outcomes and background variables such as your students’ socio-economic profile and your school’s learning environment. It will also place your students’ achievements in context, relative to PISA outcomes within the UK and worldwide. This will allow you to benchmark your students’ performance against that of their peers in the UK as well as in some of the world’s top-performing schools.
In short, your report is designed to help you better understand the extent to which your students are equipped with the skills needed in today’s global economy, and to stimulate the reflection and discussion that can inform school self-assessment and improvement.
The mix of generic and school specific coverage in the final document is excellent. - Mr P. Derham, Westminster School
