Where immigrant students succeed: a comparative review of performance and engagement in PISA 2003

Based on the recognition that the successful integration of immigrant students into the education system presents a centra1 concern to many countries worldwide, this report analyses evidence from PISA 2003 on outcomes of schooling, including how well immigrant students perform in key school subjects at the age of 15, as well as how they assess themselves as learners and what their general attitudes are towards school. Two groups of immigrant students are analysed: first-generation students who were born outside the country of assessment and whose parents were also born in a different country; and second-generation students who themselves were born in the country of assessment but whose parents were born in a different country, i.e. students who have followed all their schooling in the country of assessment. The report compares immigrant students to native students who were born in the country of assessment and who had at least one parent born in that country.
