Students in Grades 3, 5, 7 and 10 achieved impressive results in the International Schools' Assessment, performing above world averages in all categories.
Each year at ZIS all students in Grades 3, 5, 7 and 10 take the International Schools' Assessment (ISA) program to measure their ability in math literacy, reading, narrative writing, and expository writing.
The program, designed specifically for students in international schools in Grades 3 to 10, is based on the internationally-endorsed reading, mathematical literacy and literacy frameworks of the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
The test compares their achievement with that of students in over 400 schools, including schools with a similar ratio of students from English and non-English speaking backgrounds. The results help us to better support individual student learning needs, examine the relative performance of a grade level compared with other students from around the world, and to measure the effectiveness of our curriculum and instruction. You will find a short summary of the ISA programme here.
We are pleased to report that our ZIS results again this year are exceptional. Like last year, in every category assessed, ZIS students performed above or at the world average as compared with other international schools. Please see the presentation for an overview of the results prepared by Ji Han, Director of Curriculum and Learning.
Individual results will be mailed to parents and students this week. Parents will receive a summary of your child’s results for each of the test areas in the mail. Please contact your child’s teacher for further clarification or questions.
