Document Number: 6272How Well Do Advanced Placement (AP) Students Perform on the TIMSS Advanced Mathematics and and Physics Tests? - For this report, a national sample of AP Calculus (AB or BC) and AP Physics students were given the 1995 TIMSS Advanced Mathematics and TIMSS Physics test. The AP Calculus students scored higher on the TIMSS Advanced Mathematics exam than students in all countries but France. AP Physics students came in fourth on the TIMSS Physics test behind students in Norway, Sweden and the Russian Federation. Students who scored a 3 or higher on the AP Physics assessment, however, posted higher scores on the TIMSS physics test than these countries. (Eugenio J. Gonzalez, Kathleen M. O’Connor and Julie A.
