Global survey sees English schools rise in reading but slip in science
Peter WalkerEnglish schools have received a mixed assessment overall from one of the biggest regular studies of global educational attainment, rising up the table for reading, holding steady for maths and dipping in science.
The picture comes from a trio of vast studies by the Amsterdam-based International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), which compared dozens of countries based on assessments carried out at various times on samples of hundreds of thousands of students.
The IEA's methods aim to gauge absolute achievement against set standards, allowing countries to see whether their schools are performing better or worse overall compared with those of others.
