Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)

Overview

The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), is one of the only standardized tests given to students in the United States and nations around the world, allowing for international performance comparisons. States typically do receive individual results, and participate only by testing a small sampling of students whose results contribute to the nationwide average. This allows us to compare the mathematics and science performance of Massachusetts' students to their peers in both other states and in other countries.
