TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) 1994/95

Publication Details

The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 1994/95 (previously known as the Third International Mathematics and Science Study) was the first in a cycle of studies that gave participating countries the opportunity to examine their students’ achievement in mathematics and science relative to that of students in other countries. The study was also designed so that it could provide countries with an opportunity to measure trends in mathematics and science achievement in subsequent cycles. This first cycle covered achievement at three educational levels: middle primary (Years 4 and 5), upper primary and lower secondary (Years 8 and 9), and students in their final year of schooling (Years 12 and 13). In addition, a sub-sample of students from Years 5 and 9 participated in the performance assessment component of TIMSS.

TIMSS 1994: Performance assessment in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study: New Zealand results

TIMSS 1994: Performance assessment in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study: New Zealand results The aim of this report is to present the tasks, and indicate the performance expectations for which measures were sought, with New Zealand and mean international success rates, and comment where this seems desirable. Direct comparisons between New Zealand success rates and those of selected countries will be made for some items.

TIMSS 1994: Mathematics and Science Performance in Middle Primary School

TIMSS 1994: Mathematics and Science Performance in Middle Primary School This report examines background and achievement data for standard 2 and standard 3 (9-year-old) students collected in New Zealand in late 1994. The years immediately prior to 1994 were characterised by major changes in education, including the development of new mathematics and science curricula. New Zealand's performance in mathematics and science has been viewed in this context.

TIMSS 1994: Science Performance of New Zealand Form 2 and Form 3 Students

TIMSS 1994: Science Performance of New Zealand Form 2 and Form 3 Students This report examines background and mathematics achievement data for form 2 and form 3 (13-year-old) students collected in New Zealand in late 1994. The years immediately prior to 1994 were characterised by major changes in administrative structures and management of education in New Zealand, as well as the development and introduction of a new mathematics curriculum. New Zealand's performance in mathematics has been viewed in this context; however, the extent to which these changes have had an effect in achievement is believed to be minimal.
