Towards the end of 2002, over 10 000 Australian students in Year 4 and Year 8 participated in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS 2002/03). These students completed tests in mathematics and science achievement, and answered questionnaires on their background and experiences in learning mathematics and science at school. School principals and the students' mathematics and science teachers also completed detailed questionnaires. In 45 other countries students, teachers and principals completed the same tests and questionnaires.
