Students in the United States continue to fall behind students in other OECD countries in math and science.

The National Science Foundation has prepared two charts that show the average math and science scores from tests administered under the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment, or PISA. These tests are given to 15-year-old students every three years.

The latest math results from 2012 will be released on Dec. 3, 2013. Hopefully, American students will have improved since 2009.

On the PISA math test in 2009, the U.S. average score of 487 fell below the OECD average of 496. This was also lower than the scores of 17 other OECD nations. The highest-scoring nation, South Korea, had an average score of 546, followed closely by Finland with an average score of 541.
