International surveys - TIMMS.

The TIMMS survey is an international study conducted every four years that analyses students’ achievements in maths and science in the first educational cycle (class IV of primary school and class III of middle school) in more than 60 countries. The last survey was carried out in 2007 and these results will be published in 2008. The survey is conducted in conjunction with INVALSI (National Institute for the Evaluation of the Educational System ). Trentino was included in the 1996 and 2003 surveys and requested permission in 2008 to be included in the 2007 survey. A diachronic comparison between the 2003 results and 2007 results will enable individual class teachers and schools to understand their students progress within a national and international performance framework. In may 2008, 4500 students from 60 different schools were tested in maths and science. The results will be available from the first semester of 2009.
