Figure CL-4. Change in average PISA reading literacy scores of 15-year-old students in selected jurisdictions, by jurisdiction: 2000 to 2003


Change in average PISA reading literacy scores of 15-year-old students in selected jurisdictions, by jurisdiction: 2000 to 2003

arrow pointing up Average score was higher than the U.S. average score.
arrow pointing down score was lower than the U.S. average score.
# Rounds to zero.
NOTE: Selected jurisdictions include those that participated in both PISA 2000 and PISA 2003. The Netherlands participated in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2000, but its data are omitted from the PISA report because of technical problems with its sample. Average reading literacy scores are reported on a scale from 0 to 1,000. Tests for statistical significance take into account the standard errors for scores in both years and the linking error across assessments. For more information on linking error, see appendix A. Because the size of standard errors can vary, a small difference between the scores of one jurisdiction may be significant while a larger difference between the scores of another jurisdiction may not be significant. Detail may not sum to totals due to rounding.
