  6. 6.  Both states at the bottom of the chart in both math and sciences More than 50% failed to answer questions where all information is present and questions clearly defined
  7. 7.  Gender differences  Girls outperform boys in reading abilities across nations  Boys in HP better than girls at math and science, reverse true in TN Impact of socio-economic factors  Between-school variance in performance low in TN, HP compared to OECD averages showing poor performance across schools  Between-school variance primarily accounted by socio-economic factors School accountability and resources  Account significantly for variance in performance
