Martin, M.O., Mullis, I.V.S., & Foy, P. (with Olson, J.F., Erberber, E., Preuschoff, C., & Galia, J.). (2008). Chestnut Hill, MA: TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center, Boston College.

The TIMSS 2007 International Science Report summarizes fourth- and eighth-grade students’ science achievement in each of the 59 participating countries and 8 benchmarking participants, and describes the educational contexts for science instruction. It includes trends in science achievement over time for participants in previous TIMSS assessments in 1995, 1999, and 2003, as well as student performance at the TIMSS International Benchmarks. Achievement results also are presented for science content and cognitive domains. The Science Report presents a rich array of information about students’ backgrounds and attitudes toward science; the science curriculum; teachers’ education and training; classroom characteristics and activities; and school contexts for science learning and instruction.
