ABSTRACT
The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) took place ill 1995 and involved three student populations: those in Grade 4, Grade 8 and in the last year of secondary schooling. In 1999, the study was repeated (TIMSS-R) with students at the Grade 8 level ill 38 countries. Students from 26 countries including Australia participated at this level in both 1995 and 1999. Comparisons were therefore possible between the Grade 8 students who were tested in these two years and, in the case of Australia and 16 other countries, between the cohort of students who were in Grade 4 in 1995 and in Grade 8 in 1999. TIMSS is much more than an assessment of student achievement. There are many facets to the data that are collected in these international studies. Besides achievement data, an extensive range of information about curricula, teaching practices, and the influences on students and teachers inside and outside the classroom was collected during TIMSS-R.
