Policy Perils of International Comparisons: The TIMSS Case.
Atkin, J. Myron; Black, Paul
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n1 p22-28 Sep 1997
An innovation-focused Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) study of 13 nations participating in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) found universal unhappiness with the state of mathematics and science education. There was no link among successful test scores, improvement goals, or satisfaction of "outstanding" criteria. America's efforts to imitate "successful" neighbors may be counterproductive.
