    Mathematics and science are key areas of knowledge for the development of individuals and for the social and economic development of South Africa. In November , about Grade 8 learners from South African public schools participated in the Trends in . The study investigated the relationship between South African Grade 9 teachers' and learners' perceptions and attitudes with their mathematics achievement. The study used a secondary analysis of the TIMSS mathematics data, guided by the conceptual framework model of Scheerens (). The quantitative data collected through teachers' and.

    that perform well in international mathematics assessments like TIMSS and PISA, through which top mathematics school-leavers enter, and might even have to compete for places in, degree programmes, ultimately leading to teaching careers. Perhaps implied in this is a criticism within the USA where, as in South Africa, teaching is notCited by: 1. the growing literature1 on South African schools. CREATE achievement tests In June , 12 township schools from two provinces (Gauteng and Eastern Cape) wrote standardised mathematics achievement tests.

    In the Grade 8 TIMSS, South Africa scored the lowest of 46 participating countries in both Mathematics ( compared to an international mean of ) and Science ( vs. ). Whilst formerly white schools performed at the international mean level, formerly black schools achieved less than half that level (Reddy, 50).Cited by:   Highlights From TIMSS Mathematics and Science Achievement of U.S. Fourth- and Eighth-Grade Students in an International Context: Description: The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is the fifth administration of this international comparative study since when first administered. "TIMSS performance from to shows that there was a significant improvement of 87 points for Mathematics and 90 points for Science, more than for any other country with comparable data.
