Paris / Girls are better than boys in resolving problems collectively, OECD says in the first PISA report dedicated exclusively to teamwork.

Once again, the Asian countries are the ones that get the best results and are placed in the lead.

The conclusions of this new report contrast with the individual evaluations in specific knowledge, according to which the girls are better in reading, but worse in mathematics and sciences.

Girls gets 29 points than boys

According to the conclusions by PISA on teamwork, students outnumber their mates by an average of 29 points and by 40 points in Australia, Finland, Latvia, New Zealand and Sweden. 

This difference is reduced to less than ten points in Colombia, Costa Rica and Peru.

In total, girls get 515 points in the matter in the OECD, compared to 508 for boys.
Those countries such as Spain, with 508 and 485 points, respectively, run that benchmark.

32 countries participated

The study was carried out in 2015 in 32 member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and 19 other nations or associated economies.

On this occasion it is noted that female students are more interested in the opinions of others and want others to succeed, while boys see better the individual benefits of teamwork.

OECD also reflects that although the boys are more efficient when completing a task and finding the necessary information as soon as possible, the girls show a more cooperative behavior and more enthusiasm.

Beyond the gender difference, the students from Singapore (561), Japan (552), Hong Kong (541) and Korea (538) are the ones that obtain the best results in teamwork, compared to those from Tunisia (382 ), Brazil (412), Montenegro (416) and Peru (418).

The organism emphasizes the importance of preparing students to know how to cooperate in a world that is changing more and more rapidly and in which it is necessary to work with people of different cultures and ideas. (November 21, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
