Mathematics and Science Benchmarking Reports for TIMSS 1999: A Bridge to School Improvement MS Word - The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and Third International Mathematics and Science Study-Repeat (TIMSS-R) are the result of the need in the American education community for reliable and timely data on the mathematics and science achievement of our students compared to that of students in other countries.
