PISA results 2015 – maths results unchanged – analysis from leading expert

Comment from Anne Watson, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Oxford:

“It seems as if policy and resource intervention by governments either has little effect or, at best, prevents decline of achievement over time. Put together with the TIMSS results however, which have shown decline in performance between years 5 and 9, the PISA results support an argument that Key Stage 3 is in need of some effective investment. It would be useful to start by looking at how our own science teachers sustain a higher level of performance for advice about how to improve.”
