Pong, Suet-ling; Pallas, Aaron
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v23 n3 p251-73 Fall 2001
Uses data from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) to examine the relationship between class size and mathematics achievement in nine countries. In no country other than the United States was a beneficial effect found for small class sizes. Except in Hong Kong, neither curricular coverage nor instructional practices mediates the relationship between class size and mathematics achievement. (SLD)
