Abstract

Sue Thomson explores what the results from an international assessment of mathematics and science reveal about the students in a typical Australian classroom.

Results from the 2015 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) were released today by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). According to the report, TIMSS 2015: A first look at Australia’s results, Australian performances in mathematics and science have stagnated over the past 20 years.
