ISA results 2020: Outperforming all benchmarks

MAY 26 2020

As per our 2019/20 school development plan, in February 2020, all students from the penultimate years of our elementary and middle schools were invited to take the International Schools’ Assessments (ISA).

International Schools’ Assessments (ISA) results 
 
As per our 2019/20 school development plan, in February 2020, all students from the penultimate years of our elementary and middle schools were invited to take the International Schools’ Assessments (ISA). The ISA is an assessment designed by The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and seeks to measure students’ levels of proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematical literacy in relation to students from other international schools and schools with an international focus. The tests are not specific to a single curriculum and participating schools follow a diverse range of curricula including International Baccalaureate (IB), British National, USA and more and are based on the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) frameworks, in consultation with international schools and drawing upon ACER’s extensive assessment development experience.
 
As a school community, we have every reason to be absolutely delighted with the results from the assessments sat in mathematical literacy, reading, and writing (which we received on April 9th) and these are a cause for celebration. Here are some of the highlights from an initial analysis:

  • students of the International School of Monza outperformed all benchmarks for international schools with similar student language profiles;
  • writing is substantially above global international school benchmarks in both PYP and MYP; our PYP writers are amongst the top globally in exposition and argument;
  • reading is above international schools with similar student language profiles;
  • mathematical literacy is above global international school benchmarks, substantially so in MYP.

 
The primary reason for the International School of Monza having decided to have students take these assessments is such that we can benchmark ourselves against some of the best international schools globally in elementary and middle school (just as we already do use International Baccalaureate MYP5 and DP2 results in high school) and, subsequently, identify areas for continuing curriculum development. These results are particularly impressive when you consider that we did not “teach to the test” at all!

Phenomenal Quinta Elementare results for our Grade 6 students!

Results like this, awarded by an independent, external commission of teachers at a local state school, are particularly impressive given that students spend most of their time following the IB Primary Years Programme and not the Italian state curriculum.

Congratulations to the students and their teachers for their achievements, as well as to some very proud, supportive parents!
