Education for sustainable development is a key element of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.The PISA 2015 Science Test is designed to explore students' scientific knowledge, sustainable development understanding, abilities and attitudes.Cognitive demand results through scientific test which is designed to analyze the different levels of global student in problem solving, overall reasoning and critical thinking.
In this study, I explore how the differences in gender balance among global 15-year-old students related to their scientific literacy. The study consists of three distinct parts: the background of PISA test, quantitative analysis, and data visualization. This study explores how 15-year-old students behave when they are solving scientific problems. According to the data from the OECD 2015 PISA test, a linear regression model will be built to test how changes in gender balance in regional groups predict students' relevance in science, family background, and family economic status. Students’ parental views on science and the environment, family economy, school science education, and performance habits and experiences.The results show that parents' views on science and the environment, as well as the family economy will positively affect students' scientific literacy performance.The implications of data analysis results and future research recommendations will also be discussed.
