## General

Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study

Since 1995 about 50 countries have been assessing trends in students' mathematics and science achievement on a regular four-year cycle. Countries participate at the fourth and eighth grades as well as the final year of schooling. With results of 2003 reported in december 2004, countries are now enrolling in TIMSS 2007. TIMSS 2007 will collect data in mathematics and science at fourth and eighth grades (leeftijden 9/10 en 13/14 jaar) In addition, following expressions of interest from a number of countries in assessing the final grade of schooling, TIMSS 2007 is offering an option to collect data at twelfth grade for students with advanced preparation in mathematics and two branches of science: biology and physics.
