PISA: U.S. students score above average in creative problem-solving
Fifteen-year-old students in the U.S. who took part in a new Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, problem-solving exam scored above average in creative problem-solving. The test questions differed from traditional PISA math questions in that they were offered online and used a more interactive question-and-answer format. Singapore ranked highest overall in problem-solving. The Hechinger Report/Education By The Numbers (4/1), T.H.E. Journal (4/1)
