image of Where Immigrant Students Succeed

Drawing on data from the OECD’s Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA), this report examines the performance of students with immigrant backgrounds and compares it to that of their native counterparts. As well as providing information on countries’ approaches to the integration of immigrants, it looks at other factors that could influence immigrant students’ performance – such as their attitudes to school, their motivation and learning strategies as well as their social background and the language spoken at home – giving valuable implications for educational policy.

Immigrant Students' Approaches to Learning

While previous chapters have focused on student performance and its relationship with student background, it is also important to examine how well education systems are serving immigrant students in other aspects of learning. School systems not only need to provide students with essential literacy skills, but also with other fundamental skills and dispositions necessary to manage their own learning.
