Alberta students best in Canada at reading, science, worldwide test results show

In Denmark, 7,657 students at 344 schools took part in the study.

But Tuesday's release of the 2018 Pisa ranking suggests that Swedish schools have further improved on a recovery that started with the 2016 edition, with above-average scores in reading, mathematics and science.

The results revealed Estonia was the highest-performing OECD country in reading and science, while Japan topped results in maths.

"Results from PISA indicate the quality and equity of learning outcomes attained around the world, and allow educators and policy makers to learn from the policies and practices applied in other countries", said OECD.

For reading and mathematics, Danish students' development has remained stable, although boys did slightly worse in mathematics compared to 2015, while girls fared a little better.

Australian students are now three-and-a-half years behind their Chinese counterparts in maths, three years in science and one-and-a-half in reading.

In mathematics, Luxembourg dropped three points, and in science, Luxembourgish pupils dropped seven points compared to the last test - 12 points under OECD averages. Boys perform better than girls with a non-statistically significant difference of 4 points (OECD average: 5 points higher for boys).

Amin said the Pisa 2018 involved 6,111 participants, selected to represent 388,638 of the 15-year-old students in the country.

The report also notes, meanwhile, that the index of sense of belonging in Norway was one of the highest among Pisa-participating countries and economies, ranked fourth of 75.

"Reading proficiency is essential for a wide variety of human activities - from following instructions in a manual; to finding out the who, what, when, where and why of an event; to communicating with others for a specific goal or transaction", said OECD.

So who performed the best globally?

In reading, 15-year-olds in non-OECD member China's provinces Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang received a mean score of 555 in reading, followed by Singapore (549) and Macao (525).

In reading performance, non-immigrant 15-year-old students outperformed immigrant students by 83 score points, or 54 score points if adjusting for the students' socio-economic background, suggesting that more work needs to be done to help integrate newly arrived students from other parts of the world.

The same trio could be found top in mathematics (591, 569 and 558) and science (590, 551 and 544).

The OECD average was 487 in reading, and 489 in mathematics and science.
