Performance at International Benchmarks

Performance at the International Benchmarks of Science Achievement

Exhibits 2.2 and 2.9 present the percentages of students reaching each of the four TIMSS International Benchmarks in science. The results are presented in descending order according to the percentage of students reaching the Advanced International Benchmark. Because students who reached the Advanced Benchmark also reached the other benchmarks, the percentages illustrated in the graph and shown in the columns to the right are cumulative.
