TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) 2002/03

Publication Details

The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), formerly known as the Third International Mathematics and Science Study, is an international comparative study that provides countries the opportunity to examine trends in mathematics and science achievement at the middle primary level (Year 5) and lower secondary level (Year 9). This is the third of the studies. New Zealand is one of more than 40 countries to take part in this third cycle.

  • TIMSS 2002/03: Mathematics and Science Achievement in New Zealand:
    Tracking the Changes of Year 5 Students in TIMSS 1994-2002

    This report presents an overview of the mathematics and science achievement results for Year 5 students for New Zealand’s participation in TIMSS 2002. Data collected in this cycle are examined in comparison with that collected from the two previous cycles. Contextual information, such as students’ demographic background, as well as attitudes to mathematics and science, is also provided and the relationship with achievement discussed.

  • TIMSS 2002/03: Mathematics and Science Achievement in New Zealand: Summing up New Zealand's participation in three cycles of TIMSS at Year 9

    This report presents a descriptive overview of the mathematics and science achievement results of Year 9 students. It does this using the third (2002/2003) cycle of TIMSS. This cycle builds a comprehensive picture of trends in mathematics and science achievement for Year 9 students after one year of secondary schooling. Data collected in this cycle are viewed in the context of baseline data collected in New Zealand in 1994 along with data collected four years later in 1998. The report integrates and reflects on data from all three cycles.

  • TIMSS 2002/03: Achievement in the Mathematics Cognitive Domains

    Recently, the TIMSS international research team undertook a developmental project to describe mathematics achievement by three mutually exclusive cognitive domains: knowing, applying and reasoning. This report focuses on the achievement of New Zealand students in an international context in each of those cognitive domains.

    Year 9 Summary Report

    The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, 2002-2003 (TIMSS-02/03) is the third cycle of this international study of mathematics and science achievement conducted under the auspices of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The study was administered in New Zealand and other Southern Hemisphere countries in late 2002 and in Northern Hemisphere countries in early 2003. The study involved students equivalent to New Zealand’s Year 5 and Year 9 students from 25 and 46 countries respectively. This report presents some of the main results for New Zealand at the Year 9 level, placed in an international context.
