Percentage of students achieving level 3 or better on the PISA science test. Achievement levels run from 1 to 6. At Level 3, students can draw upon moderately complex content knowledge to identify or construct explanations of familiar phenomena. In less familiar or more complex situations, they can construct explanations with relevant cueing or support. They can draw on elements of procedural or epistemic knowledge to carry out a simple experiment in a constrained context. Level 3 students are able to distinguish between scientific and non-scientific issues and identify the evidence supporting a scientific claim.

For the Quality of Life rights (economic and social rights), HRMI measures countries against 2 different benchmarks. You can change benchmarks by clicking the 'Switch view' button
Income adjusted: How well is the country doing compared to what we know is possible at that country's income level? Every country can achieve 100% against this benchmark if they use their available resources effectively, so any lower score tells us that improvement is needed, and is possible.
Global best: How well is the country doing compared to the rest of the world, including the wealthiest countries?
For the Quality of Life rights (economic and social rights) we have two assessment standards - two collections of indicators we use to measure the rights.
Low and middle income: Uses statistical indicators that are available for most countries in the world, particularly low and middle income countries.
High income: Uses some indicators that are primarily available for high income countries, and better reflect the human rights challenges of high income countries.
