Bracey, Gerald W.
Educational Researcher, v29 n4 p4-10 May 2000
Describes the tests used in the Final Year Study of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), noting a variety of problems that render any interpretation of the study problematic (e.g., misleading statements, age variation, the devastating character of the results, failure of quality controls, differences in populations studied, curriculum structure, and cultural variables).
