Apples verses Oranges – International Testing

I have long thought that the comparisons between US test scores and those of say, China, presented the classic “Apples verses Oranges” type of comparison.  When I traveled to China their system of public education ends at 8th grade.  So, only select students end up with higher degrees, including a high school diploma.  So, I came across a very interesting article that actually took a closer look at the scores.  It basically says that those comparisons shouldn’t be trusted on face value alone.
