Title:  Linking The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS): Eighth-Grade Results
Description: This is second of two reports about the linking of NAEP results to TIMSS results for grade 8 mathematics and science. The results presented in this report are based on a link of NAEP to TIMSS, thereby providing predicted TIMSS results for given NAEP results. Comparisons are given for grade 8 mathematics and science of the states and jurisdictions which participated in NAEP in 1996 with the nations that participated in TIMSS in 1995. In addition, for each state and jurisdiction, the estimated percentage of students reaching the TIMSS International Top Half and Top Ten Percent marker levels are given for grade 8 mathematics and science.
