NOTE: The computer-based reading literacy assessment was an optional assessment for education systems in 2012. Education systems are ordered by 2012 average score. The OECD average is the average of the national averages of the OECD member countries, with each country weighted equally. Scores are reported on a scale from 0 to 1,000. All average scores reported as higher or lower than the U.S. average score are different at the .05 level of statistical significance. Standard error is noted by s.e. Italics indicate non-OECD countries and education systems. This table corresponds to table 6 in Performance of U.S. 15-Year-Old Students in Mathematics, Science, and Reading Literacy in an International Context (NCES 2014-024).
