International Success, but Is It Science? Identifying Strengths and Weaknesses in Australian Primary School Science from TIMSS and Other Data.
Fensham, Peter J.
Australian Science Teachers' Journal, v45 n2 p39-44 Jun 1999
Analyzes two conflicting pieces of evidence--the high-ranking achievement of Australian primary students on the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), and the knowledge that the quality of primary science education in Australia has been poor for some time. Reveals strengths and weaknesses in Australian elementary science education that should be addressed in future plans. (Contains 23 references.) (Author/WRM)
