Davis, Kimberly E. Bryant; Hardin, Stacey E. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2013
The work from the University of Central Florida's STEM summer camp (sponsored by Workforce Central Florida) is shared. The camps targeted low-SES schools with a high percentage of students on free and reduced lunch as well as high percentages of students with. Students were given preassessments and postassessments to gauge their knowledge of and…

Oversby, John; McGregor, Deb – Education in Science, 2012
Construction of science education policy is, for most practising educators, somewhat shrouded in mist. Policies are currently conveyed by the present Secretary of State with responsibility for education through presentations of governmental papers and curricular documents. While it may seem strange that a politician can be elected one day, and…

Usiskin, Zalman – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Singapore students have scored exceedingly well on international tests in mathematics. In response, there has been a desire in the United States--both at the policy level and at the school level--to emulate Singapore. Because what can be identified most easily about Singapore's school mathematics can be gleaned from curriculum documents from the…

Sami, Fary – MathAMATYC Educator, 2012
During the last 20 years, there has been an increasing awareness that the U.S. is falling behind in its mathematics education of primary and secondary school students. For those who teach mathematics at the community college level, the deficiencies in mathematics education are painfully evident by the number of students requiring remedial math…

Bakker, Steven – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2012
A particular trait of the educational system under socialist reign was accountability at the input side--appropriate facilities, centrally decided curriculum, approved text-books, and uniformly trained teachers--but no control on the output. It was simply assumed that it met the agreed standards, which was, in turn, proven by the statistics…

Brown, Margaret – Curriculum Journal, 2011
Inferences from recent international comparative data on mathematical attainment, frequently quoted as justification for curriculum change, are critically examined, and the implications are contrasted with expressed curricular aims. Using characterisations by Ball (1990) and Ernest (1991), positions of key actors are analysed in relation to…

Alvarez, Charles Alex; Edwards, Douglas; Harris, Bonnie – NCSSSMST Journal, 2010
Addressing the under-representation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields has been an initiative of the U.S. Congress for the past 30 years, but the challenge still remains unresolved. The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Congressional Committee on Equal…

Wang, Jianjun – Educational Researcher, 2001
Examines student performance from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), explaining that the test score component of the TIMSS has some technical problems that should be considered when interpreting results and that TIMSS country rankings should not be accepted at face value. Other technical issues hinge on instrument…

Valverde, Gilbert A.; Schmidt, William H. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2000
Explores expectations regarding about student performance in educational systems of high-achieving countries using data from the United States and 21 other high-achieving countries that participated in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Demonstrates that levels of standards relate to levels of student attainment in…

Bracey, Gerald W. – Educational Researcher, 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…

Gibbs, W. Wayt; Fox, Douglas – Scientific American, 1999
Explains the reasons for low U.S. score results on the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and compares them with students from other nations. Swedish high schools scored highest on the science test, which is attributed to their curriculum. Suggests that the majority of students are taught science that is irrelevant for their…
