  • Abstract

    TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) 2011 is an international educational large scale student assessment. The investigation is focused on mathematical and scientific skills of primary school children in Germany in an international comparison. It is carried out every four years. TIMSS examined student performance in math and science area, taking account of curricular requirements and other key conditions of school learning environment. TIMSS took place in 2011 for the third time in Germany. In 1995, Germany participated in the intermediate and advanced study and in 2007 in the primary school examination. The survey in 2011 was also a pure primary school examination. Germany is participating in the study at the decision of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the Länder (KMK) under an agreement between the KMK and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In 2011, the implementing cycles of TIMSS and IGLU / PIRLS, another IEA study, coincided for the first time, so that the two studies fused at the operational level and used the same sample.
