|Table CPS8. Average scores of U.S. 15-year-old students on the PISA collaborative problem solving scale, by race/ethnicity: 2015|
|Race/ethnicity—United States||Average score||s.e.|
|Race/ethnicity—North Carolina||Average score||s.e.|
|North Carolina average||525||**||5.3|
|* p<.05. Significantly different from both the U.S. and OECD averages at the .05 level of statistical significance.
** p<.05. Significantly different from the OECD average at the .05 level of statistical significance.
*** p<.05. Significantly different from the U.S. average at the .05 level of statistical significance.
NOTE: Scores are reported on a scale from 0 to 1,000. Reporting standards were not met for American Indian/Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander. Black includes African American, and Hispanic includes Latino. Students who identified themselves as being of Hispanic origin were classified as Hispanic, regardless of their race. Although data for some race/ethnicities are not shown separately because the reporting standards were not met, they are included in the U.S., Massachusetts, and North Carolina totals. The OECD average is the average of the national average scores of the 32 OECD member countries that participated in the collaborative problem solving assessment, with each system weighted equally. Standard error is noted by s.e. Results for Massachusetts and North Carolina are for public school students only.
