Forces for Change in Mathematics Education: The Case of TIMSS
Keywords:Curriculum Development, Educational Change, Foreign Countries, Mathematics Education, Mathematics Instruction, Teaching Methods, Test Results, Test Use
AbstractThe results of the Third International Study in Mathematics and Science Education (TIMSS) were published in 1996/7. Since that time the participating countries have reacted in a variety of ways to the comparative performance of their students. This article investigates the diverse effects these reactions have had on mathematics curricula and teaching methodologies in a selection of these countries, within the context of a wider analysis of the motivations which determine change in education.
