NOTE: All average scores reported as higher or lower than the Puerto Rico average score are different at the .05 level of statistical significance. The OECD average is the average of the national averages of the OECD member countries, with each country weighted equally. Italics indicate non-OECD countries and education systems. B-S-J-G (China) refers to the four PISA participating China provinces: Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Guangdong. Although Argentina, Malaysia, and Kazakhstan participated in PISA 2015, technical problems with their samples prevent results from being discussed in this report.
