Worldwide Literacy Scores on Google Maps

Ekstra Bladet - PISA Scores

The Programme for International Student Assessment is a worldwide evaluation of 15-year-old school pupils' scholastic performance undertaken by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet has created a Fusion Table of the results and then used Google Gadgets to embed a map of the results. The map shows the results of the standardized test for literacy among 15-year-old. The study is based on a two-hour test and around half a million students in more than 70 countries participated in the study.

The darker the shade of green on the map the better the results in the test. If you mouse-over a country on the map the score for the country is displayed on the map.
