PISA: Fördjupad analys flickor-pojkar

OECD har tagit fram en ny PISA-rapport med fördjupad analys av likheter och skillnader i prestationer och attityder hos 15 åriga pojkar och flickor.

Några citat:

Some key findings include:
– in reading in Pisa 2000, females significantly outscored males in all countries.
– in mathematics in Pisa 2003, males often outscored females.
–  in science overall in Pisa 2006, there was no significant difference between males and females in the level of performance.

Only a few countries showed statistically significant gender differences in problem solving. In Iceland, Norway and Sweden, as well as in the partner countries Indonesia and Thailand, female students outperformed male students in problem solving.

The data also show that male and female students are making different tertiary education and career choices in relation to science, with females showing a preference for health related courses and males for computing science. Taking all the observations and analyses together it seems that gender differences are actually increasing as students get older.
