Abstract

TIMSS estimates mathematics and science achievement and attempts to explain students' performance using contextual information. The TIMSS design also offers participating countries an opportunity to measure changes over time. The goal of the study is to help countries make informed decisions about how to improve teaching and learning in mathematics and science.
