COMING SOON: Australian summary reports and international results for the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) will release the Australian summary report for TIMSS at 8.00pm AEDT on 29 November 2016, and for PISA at 9.00pm AEDT on 6 December 2016.
Same but different: TIMSS and PISA are both global assessments that report trends in student achievement.
The focus of TIMSS is on Years 4 and 8 students’ achievement in the mathematics and science curriculum and is conducted every four years.
The focus of PISA is on how 15-year-old students apply their science, reading and mathematics skills to real-life situations,and is conducted every three years.
