ISA Results Highlight the High Standard of Teaching and Learning at MIS

We are proud to celebrate an example of the academic success of our students, staff, parents, and MIS school community. In February 2018, students from Grades 3 to 5 participated in the International Schools’ Assessment (ISA), a programme developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and designed specifically for international schools. The test provides MIS with a means to compare the academic performance of our students with other international school students.

このたび、児童、スタッフそして保護者の皆様及びMISコミュニティーが一体となり、素晴らしい学業成績を残すことができましたのでご報告させていただきます。今年2月、インターナショナル・スクールズ・アセスメント(ISA:International Schools’ Assessment)が実施されました。オーストラリア教育研究評議会(ACER:Australian Council for Educational Research)主催によるこのテストは、インターナショナルスクールのために作られたテストで、当校では3年生から5年生までの児童が受験いたしました。このテストにより、MISの児童の学力を他のインターナショナルスクールと比較することができます。

What follows are facts about the test: – 66,000 students took the online tests at 297 international schools in 64 countries. – 11,375 students took the Grade 3 tests; 10,377 took the G4 tests; 12,321 took the G5 tests. – For purposes of making comparisons, schools are grouped according to their majority home language. MIS was listed as a Group 1 school. Group 1 schools have 15% or less of their pupils whose native language at home is English.

ISA学力テストの概要: – 64ヶ国、297校の66,000名がオンライン方式でテストを受験 – 各学年の受験者数/3年生11,375名・4年生10,377名・5年生 12,321名 – 比較調査をするため、家庭内言語により各学校が分類されている。当校はグループ1(家庭でのネイティブ言語が英語の児童数が全体の15%以下)に該当

When looking at the overall results, the MIS school community can be greatly reassured that our students’ achievements compare very well to all other groups. In all subjects, MIS averages are significantly above the averages for other Group 1 schools. In many areas, the MIS results compare favourably with the Asian Schools’ averages and the All Schools’ averages. You can see these results in the chart below.


Well done to the students, their teachers and their parents. You deserve great credit!
