• Contextualizing ESL factors with PISA results

    Longitudinal studies of students which follow them from their initial participation in the PISA study at age 15 clearly show that the strongest predictor of students’ early school leaving (ESL) is their achievement in the PISA test. This achievement is a significant predictor of ESL, even after controlling for students’ socio-economic status. These data show that strong competencies can help overcome the effects of disadvantages.
