Title: Using TIMSS to Analyze Correlates of Performance Variation in Mathematics
Description: This study used data from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) to compare the variability of performance in the United States and several other countries, investigate how this performance variation is distributed within and between classrooms, and explore how well background variables predict performance at both levels. In addition, the study explored how well suited the TIMSS design is to addressing questions of this sort.
