Each of the sample tests
Edinformatics designed, use actual questions from the TIMSS (Third International
Math and Science Survey). Tests consist of 25 questions from each of the representative
groups.  Test
Assessment: After you submit your final answers
your test will be graded within seconds. Your total score will be returned showing
the following paths (links)you may take to assist you: 
A table with your answer to each question and the correct answer

A bar graph that shows how all students that have taken the test performed on
each question.
 A table that shows student
performance for each question during the original TIMSS international test and
the average international score.
 
TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics
and Science Study) is designed to help countries all over the world improve student
learning in mathematics and science. It collects educational achievement data
at the 4th and 8th grades to provide information about trends in performance over
time together with extensive background information to address concerns about
the quantity, quality, and content of instruction. Data
collection for TIMSS 2003 has just been completed and expected in December 2004.
We urge you to visit the TIMSS
2003 homepage for complete details. AND
PARTICIPATE IN FUTURE TIMSS STUDIES
