Student Response to the TIMSS Test.
Fensham, Peter J.
Research in Science Education, v28 n4 p481-89 1998
A sample of Australian Year-12 students (n=16) who participated in the TIMSS testing were interviewed immediately after the test about their responses to test items. Students had trouble relating TIMSS questions to generalized aspects of everyday life and to school science topics. Students seemed to place little value on performing well on the test but did employ practical test-taking strategies. (WRM)
