Students’ sense of belonging at school ...

„Between 2003 and 2015, students’ sense of belonging at school seems to have weakened. On average across 30 OECD countries with comparable data, over those 12 years the proportion of students who reported feeling like an outsider at school increased by 10 percentage points, from 7% to 17%. Similarly, the proportion of students who reported feeling awkward and out of place in their school increased by 9 percentage points, and the proportion of students who reported feeling lonely increased by 7 percentage points.“

„In almost all participating education systems, 15-year-old students who report greater motivation to achieve also perform better in the PISA assessment. Students in socio-economically advantaged environments perform better and show greater motivation than students in disadvantaged environments.“

A robust correlation between the disciplinary climate and students’ performance ...

„There is indeed a robust correlation between the disciplinary climate measure derived from the PISA questionnaire and students’ performance as measured by the same survey. A robust positive relationship between disciplinary climate and students’ performance has been observed since the first wave of the PISA survey in 2000.“

„In PISA 2015, Chinese students score among the lowest in the world in terms of self-reported life satisfaction. Stress and dissatisfaction can sometimes lead to tragic consequences. According to the 2014 edition of the Annual Report of China’s Education, a high share of teenagers who committed suicide were pushed to the brink by the heavy pressure of tests and exams.“

Extreme Internet users scored less in all PISA subjects ...

„In OECD countries participating in PISA, extreme Internet users – students who use the Internet more than six hours a day – displayed lower life satisfaction, higher risk of disengagement from school and higher levels of perceived loneliness at school. Extreme Internet users also scored less in all PISA subjects, even after taking into account differences in socio-economic background.“

The role of a positive school climate in the success of enquiry-based science activities ...

„PISA 2015 asked students about the teaching practices they are exposed to at school. […] The findings emphasise the role of a positive school climate in the success of enquiry-based science activities. Enquiry-based science activities are associated with lower scores in science, especially among students who attend disorderly science classes; but this negative association is weakened when students attend disciplined science lessons. The lack of discipline in a classroom makes it more difficult for teachers to organise enquiry-based activities and, in turn, reduces the effectiveness of this practice.“
OECD (Hrsg.), „PISA in Focus 90“ (November 2018), S. 2

Teacher-directed practices are likely to deliver good results ...

„Greater exposure to teacher-directed science instruction is positively associated with science performance in almost all countries, even after accounting for student socio-demographic characteristics, and observed and unobserved school features, such as whether the school is public or private, and how it is funded. […] Teacher-directed practices are likely to deliver good results regardless of the classroom environment.“

„In all countries and economies that participated in PISA 2015, socio-economic status has considerable influence on students’ performance in science, reading and mathematics. On average across OECD countries, the mean PISA science score among disadvantaged students was 452 points, while among advantaged students it was 540 points. This gap of 88 points is the equivalent of about three full years of schooling.“

Südkorea: „Approximately half the 2012 PISA participants reported receiving private tutoring, often focused on test preparation. Overall, expenditures on private tutoring added 2.6 % of gross domestic product to the government’s contribution of 3.5 % toward education. One plausible interpretation of Korea’s and other East Asian jurisdictions’ ILSA (Anm.: International Large-Scale Education Assessments) results is that they are not a result of the public education systems but rather this substantial private investment.“

In every school system, students who reported using the Internet more frequently scored lower in science ...

„Between 2012 and 2015, the time that 15-year-olds reported spending on the Internet increased from 21 to 29 hours per week, on average across OECD countries. […] In every school system, students who reported using the Internet more frequently scored lower in science than students who reported using the Internet less frequently. However, on average across OECD countries, 15-year-olds who used the Internet moderately scored above students who never used the Internet or who used it more intensively.“

„Using the Internet intensively — more than 6 hours per day — is also associated with less satisfaction with life, arriving late for school and lower education expectations, according to the OECD report PISA 2015 Results: Students’ Well-Being. Maybe Korean and Japanese parents and students know best, and that is why 15-year-olds reported spending less time connected to the Internet compared to students in other countries, particularly on school days.“

„Students everywhere are spending more and more time connected to the Internet, both at and outside of school, and Internet use among disadvantaged students is increasing exponentially. While this may have been good news a decade ago, today it may be a mixed blessing: evidence suggests that digitally connected students perform worse academically, particularly when they use the Internet intensively on school days, and extreme Internet users report lower levels of well-being.“

Der Anteil dieser Schülerinnen und Schüler ist hierzulande im vergangenen Jahrzehnt so stark gewachsen wie in kaum einem anderen OECD-Land. Waren es im Jahr 2006 nur 25 Prozent, galten im Jahr 2015 schon 32,3 Prozent der sozioökonomisch benachteiligten Schülerinnen und Schüler als ‚resilient‘, was heißt, dass sie trotz ihres ungünstigen sozioökonomischen Hintergrunds im PISA-Test solide Leistungen zeigen.“

„Across the vast majority of education systems examined, the likelihood that disadvantaged students will be resilient is higher in schools where students report a good disciplinary climate, compared to schools with more disruptive environments, even after accounting for differences in student and school socio-economic status and other factors associated with resilience.

„PISA defines children as 'extreme Internet users' when they spend more than 6 hours online per day outside school. In 2015, 16 % of 15 year olds among OECD countries could be considered 'extreme Internet users' during weekdays, and 26 % during weekends. 'Extreme Internet users' reported less life satisfaction and were more likely to be bullied at school.

„Our new data reaffirms the relationship between teacher pay and PISA pupil performance. This substantive result, which we have reported before in 2013, is now recognised as robust and of considerable policy relevance. It suggests that there is a clear relationship between the relative quality of teachers a system recruits when the wages on offer to them is higher.“

PISA results suggest that the countries with low early reading ability also have low functional literacy ...

„PISA results suggest that the countries with low early reading ability also have low functional literacy (conceptualized as the inability to comprehend the main message in grade-appropriate texts in late primary school). If students do not learn to read fluently in the early grades, there is little hope that they will develop the skills to succeed on tests like PISA or, more important, in a professional workplace.“

„Schools where the incidence of bullying is high by international standards (more than 10 % of students are frequently bullied) score 47 points lower in science, on average, than schools where bullying is less frequent (schools where less than 5 % of students are frequently bullied).

Bullying can lead to depression, anxiety and sleep disorders. About 26 % of frequently bullied students reported relatively low satisfaction with life (a value less than or equal to 4 on a scale from 0 to 10).
