Student Performance in Georgia According to PISA
Programme for International Student Ass ess ment
The PISA Plus Report of 2009 showed that only 38% of students in Georgia are estimated to have a level of proficiency in reading literacy that is at or above the baseline level needed to participate effectively and productively in life. The majority of students therefore perform below the baseline level of proficiency in reading.
In mathematics, more than 40% of students are unable to answer familiar context questions, identify information and make simple procedures. Only 31.2% of students are proficient in mathematics at least to the baseline level at which they begin to demonstrate the kind of skills that enable them to use mathematics in ways considered fundamental for their future development.
