In February 2017, students in Grades 3 through 8 participated in the International Schools Assessment (ISA) examinations.
Munich International School is excited to announce that our students have achieved outstanding results. MIS students have set new records for academic performance this year at multiple grade levels, surpassing previous levels and ranking MIS students’ performance in Grade 8 above those of all national systems, including famed Singapore and Finland. ISA examinations test students’ level of academic achievement in the areas of mathematical literacy, reading, and two forms of academic writing. Despite the fact that PISA participants have more than a year of additional schooling under their belts, MIS students performed significantly better in all areas tested. Please see the graphs below for a comparison of MIS’ students with those in the PISA study.
ISA scores allow comparison of student performance in international schools to the performance of students in national systems, thanks to the compatibility of ISA tests with the tests of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). Data from Grade 8 students at MIS, who are normally 13 or 14 years of age, is compared with scores from 15-year old students who take the PISA tests.
