Students from Korea and Singapore best at problem solving but Australians above average

Students from Singapore and Korea have performed best in the first OECD PISA assessment of creative problem-solving with students from Australia scoring above the OECD average.
85,000 students from 44 countries and economies took the computer-based test, involving real-life scenarios to measure the skills young people will use when faced with everyday problems, such as setting a thermostat or finding the quickest route to a destination.
