Well, I was wondering the purpose of making such a comparison. ISA is not an examination like the IBDP. You know, some kids will not take this seriously.  For me, looking at the result for one year only does not give you much information.  Rather I keep track of my daughters' results over a few years to see whether they have improved over the years.

ESF used to announce the mean score in the annual report. You could find the result of 2012 Oct on website.

其實學生有冇為考ISA或InCAS做任何預備工夫呢?例如學校有冇mock exam?

I wonder if we should regard such "exams" or "assessments" in international primary schools so seriously? Is it meaningful? For parents to choose schools for kids?

Hmm, VSA published this and was very proud of it.  I don't think the school is ran by "local minded parents"?

Seldom heard of schools comparing academic results among themselves at primary level in UK or US. HK schools like to do this.

From what i can see, VSA's parents are probably the most "local-minded" among the major IS....

I don't think most parents/schools would proud of "better than average" result in ISA.Personally, I only take these data as on of the indicators of my children progress throughout their learning stages.
Of course, schools can refer to the result and make any necessarily enhancement in their curriculum.
Such data reflect the progress of individual child and i don't feel there are any direct contribution from the schools (or reflecting particular school's quality) unless those schools take intensive effort to prepare these assessment.

Last but not least, I DO congratulate to those schools and parents who are excited to their excellent achievement in ISA.

I believe schools taking part in ISA simply wish to gauge their overall literacy levels against international average. I don't think schools or parents will be seriously concerned about the results of individual students unless they are significantly below the average. It is kind of "health check". As long as your kid is within the normal range, who would care for comparing?

Agree.  For schools running IB PYP that are not allowed to have any kind of exams or assessments, the ISA provides a benchmark whether schools are on the right track.

Agree, it is helpful to have some benchmarks to make sure schools are not under-performing or lacking in particular areas

以香港中產,富貴家庭的資源和父母的十擔心機,低過英美同齡普通孩子的平均水平,幾乎是「沒可能」。

參考指示應為高於二至四年水平。香港家長開心些,継續努力,好快第二個愛恩斯坦就誕生了。

小女念小學時,完全無家長當這些reports是一回事。水平高四年,咪開心笑下,高兩年又唔差,跟同齡鬼仔同水平,都飲得杯落。

孩子能力高低,跟老師溝通已清楚。除非學校有心騙!

I think it is quite different between established and new schools.  There are no established curriculums for these newer schools to follow and they need these benchmarks for finetuning.
