Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study
Glanmire Community College has been selected to take part in TIMMS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) which is a series of international assessments of the Mathematics and Science knowledge of students around the world. The school has previously taken part in PISA assessments and we are again delighted to be invited to be part of this study.
TIMSS is an international comparative study of Mathematics and Science achievement at both primary (Fourth class) and post-primary (Second Year) levels. It takes place every four years and was first conducted in 1995. Ireland took part at both primary and post-primary level in the 2015 assessment.
TIMSS is a project of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) – an independent, international cooperative of national research institutions and governmental research agencies. The study is managed by a group of agencies, led by the IEA International Study Centre located in Boston College, United States.
In Ireland, the Educational Research Centre manages the implementation of TIMSS on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.
Nationally, approximately 150 schools have been asked to participate in the main study in 2019.
