    Abstract

    TIMSS is a study undertaken under the auspices of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The overall objective of TIMSS is to attempt to describe and explain (differences in) math and science achievement nationally and crossnationally in the context of instructional practices, curricular offerings and educational arrangements (Robitaille, 1993). Nearly 50 educational systems, among which The Netherlands, are currently participating in TIMSS. Data collection is scheduled in Spring 1995 in the northern hemisphere, with the first international report of the results to be
    published in the third quarter of 1996. The Dutch contribution to TIMSS is executed by the Centre for Applied Educational Research (OCTO) of the University of Twente.
