  • PISA 2015: New Zealand Students Wellbeing

    Students’ educational outcomes can be affected by a range of factors from inside and outside of the school grounds. For example, students who are motivated to succeed have high expectations for the future, and those who have a strong sense of belonging at school tend to have better academic outcomes. It is therefore vitally important that parents, educators and system leaders understand and act on these aspects of student wellbeing.

    In 2015, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) measured these and other aspects of wellbeing among 15-year-olds across 70 countries. This report summarises the main results as they relate to New Zealand students. Where relevant, this report also triangulates information from other studies to provide a fuller understanding of student wellbeing.
