State/Jurisdiction: (Arkansas)

*If the public school students in Arkansas participated in TIMSS,
how would their average performance in mathematics compare to that of students
in the 41 nations that took TIMSS at grade 8?*

(Jurisdiction) indicates that the nation, state, or jurisdiction
did not satisfy one or more of the sample participation guidelines.

Latvia-LSS: Latvian-speaking schools only

*Comparisons of averages tell how typical students perform, but they do not describe how well the best students perform. What is the estimated percentage of students in Arkansas that would perform above the TIMSS Top Ten Percent marker level? What is the estimated percentage that would perform above the Top Half marker level? (Below are estimates of the percentage of students expected to perform above the Top Ten Percent and Top Fifty Percent international marker levels. Each estimate is accompanied by a "Lower bound" and an "Upper bound" that reflect the range of possible values around the estimated percentage.) *
