Title:  Pursuing Excellence: A Study of U.S. Twelfth-Grade Mathematics and Science Achievement in International Context (1995)
Description: The data associated with this third and final age cohort represents the culmination of an international study that has tested some 500,000 students in 41 countries. The report, the third volume in a series of three reports entitled, "Pursuing Excellence," allows us to see how U.S. students fare relative to their international counterparts in a test of general mathematics and science knowledge at the end of secondary schooling. It also lets us compare across countries those students who have taken advanced mathematics and science courses.
