The latest Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) report has ranked Singaporean students as the world’s best in collaborative problem solving, along with the other core subjects of science, reading and maths.
The PISA survey assesses the performance of 15-year-olds around the world in science, maths and reading, but included this year – for the first time – an assessment on how well pupils work with one another to solve problems. The tests were conducted in 2015.
Singapore’s pupils scored highest in collaborative problem-solving around the world with 561 points, beating Japan’s, who scored 552 points. Hong Kong ranked third with 541 points.
