Is the performance gap between 15-year-old immigrant and non-immigrant students reflected in later outcomes, such as educational attainment? This chapter uses data from Switzerland’s and Canada’s longitudinal follow-ups to PISA to evaluate the extent to which differences in performance in PISA are associated with enrolment in tertiary education by age 24. These two cases highlight the differences and similarities in educational outcomes between two different educational systems and immigration regimes and the factors associated with these outcomes. Garnett Picot & Feng Hou present a Swiss-Canadian Comparison of post-secondary educational participation and success on the basis of YITS and TREE data
