[...] As individual problem-solving skills were measured in PISA 2012, the last section of this chapter compares the individual problem-solving skills of 15-year-old students in 2012 with the collaborative problem-solving skills of 15-year- old students in 2015 to see the extent to which individual problem-solving skills are captured in the new collaborative problem-solving measure. [...] Canadian students achieve a high level of proficiency in collaborative problem solving In PISA 2015, 82 per cent of Canadian students and 72 per cent of students in OECD countries performed at or above Level 2 in collaborative problem solving, contributing to a collaborative effort to solve a problem of medium difficulty (Appendix B.1.1).
