Drivers of student performance: Latin America insights

other titles
Factores que inciden en el desempeño de los estudiantes: perspectivas de América
Fatores que influenciam o sucesso escolar na América Latina

Using the PISA data set, McKinsey consultancy has created five regional reports that consider what drives student performance. In Latin America, ten countries participated in the 2015 PISA: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay. On the whole, Latin America’s PISA scores have improved, but the region still lags behind not only the OECD average but also other countries at a similar economic level. This report examines five specific factors found to be particularly important to student outcomes: mindsets, teaching practices, information technology, hours of instruction, and early childhood education.
