Ranks on international tests and economic strength

Vad finns det för samband mellan olika länders resultat på test som PISA och TIMSS och ländernas ekonomiska konkurrenskraft?

A study has investigated the existence of relationships between international test rankings from three different time periods during the last 50 years of U.S. education policy development (i.e., 1957-1982, 1983-2000, and 2001-2006) and ranks measured by the 2006 World economic forum's growth competitiveness index (GCI).

The study found that the relationship between ranks on international tests of mathematics and science and future economic strength is stronger among nations with lower-performing economies. Nations with strong economies, such as the United States, demonstrate a weaker, nonsignificant relationship.
