20 International Story of Math Assessment

21 TIMSS Trends in International Mathematics and Science Studies Administered at Grade 4, 8, and 12 Every 4 years, most recently in countries and 7 regions participated

22 Kuwait Morocco Saudi Arabia Jordan Indonesia Abu Dhabi-UAE Oman Iran, Islamic Rep. of Buenos Aires-ARG Qatar Bahrain United Arab Emirates Chile Georgia Turkey France New Zealand Slovak Republic Croatia Spain Italy Canada Dubai-UAE Ontario-CAN Australia Serbia Sweden Slovenia Germany Cyprus Bulgaria Czech Republic Hungary Netherlands Poland Finland Lithuania Quebec-CAN Denmark United States Portugal Kazakhstan Belgium (Flemish)-BEL Florida-USA England-GBR Ireland Norway Russian Federation Northern Ireland-GBR Japan Chinese Taipei-CHN Korea, Rep. of Hong Kong-CHN Singapore TIMSS 2015, Grade 4 Texas and Florida 4 th grade NAEP scores were similar, Average Scale Score by Country or Jurisdiction so Texas would be with Florida.

23 Saudi Arabia Morocco Jordan Kuwait Egypt Buenos Aires-ARG Oman Chile Thailand Iran, Islamic Rep. of Qatar Abu Dhabi-UAE Lebanon Georgia Bahrain Turkey United Arab Emirates Malaysia New Zealand Florida-USA Malta Italy Sweden Australia Israel Lithuania Norway Dubai-UAE Hungary Slovenia England-GBR United States Ontario-CAN Ireland Canada Kazakhstan Russian Federation Quebec-CAN Japan Hong Kong-CHN Chinese Taipei-CHN Korea, Rep. of Singapore Based on NAEP scores with Texas, Florida, and US avg., Texas would Average Scale Score by Country or Jurisdiction probably go here. TIMSS 2015, Grade 8

24 PISA Program for International Student Assessment Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Administered to 15-year-olds (Grade 10 in US) Every 3 years, most recently in 2015 Over 70 countries and regions participated

25 Dominican Republic Algeria Kosovo Tunisia Macedonia Brazil USA: Puerto Rico Jordan Indonesia Peru Colombia Lebanon Costa Rica Qatar Georgia Mexico Albania Thailand Trinidad and Tobago Montenegro Uruguay Moldova Turkey Chile United Arab Emirates Cyprus Bulgaria Romania Greece Buenos Aires - Argentina Croatia United States Israel USA: North Carolina Slovak Republic Hungary Lithuania Malta Latvia Luxembourg Spain Iceland Italy International Average Portugal Czech Republic United Kingdom France Australia Sweden Russian Federation Vietnam New Zealand Austria USA: Massachusetts Norway Ireland Poland Germany Belgium Slovenia Finland Denmark Netherlands Canada Estonia Switzerland Korea, Republic of B-S-J-G (China) Japan Chinese Taipei Macao - China Hong Kong - China Singapore PISA 2015, Grade 10 There is no direct comparison with high school scores in the US. Based on 8 Average Mathematics th grade NAEP, Scale Score Texas might go here. 0

26 No one ever says to a teacher, Wow, I remember that really cool worksheet we did! --Karen Karp, CAMT 2016 Opening Session Sightseeing: STAAR, state test, NAEP, TIMSS Assessment Items

35 Grade 8: Simultaneous Linear Functions Texas: STAAR 2016 Massachusetts, 2016 (no calculator) North Carolina (calculator)

36 Analysis and Implications

37 Comparing Texas Students with Other States Texas students, at Grades 4 and 8, perform above the national average. At Grade 8, that difference is not significant. States such as Massachusetts, Minnesota, and New Hampshire consistently outperform Texas. What are they doing that we aren t? Emphasizing problem-solving Balancing conceptual development with skills development

38 Comparing Texas Students with Other States Since 2011, there has been a national downward trend in NAEP math scores. For Texas, Grade 8 scores are falling faster than the nation s. 2011: $5.4 billion budget cut for schools State funding increases aren t keeping pace with enrollment growth reduction in spending per student Personnel reduction (specialists and other human resources)

39 Comparing Texas Students with Other Nations At Grades 4 and 8, Texas is like the United States not performing well, but not performing poorly. At Grade 10, Texas, like the United States, performs lower than the OECD average. What are the consistently high-performing countries (Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, certain Chinese areas) doing that we aren t? What can we learn from them? What mathematical processes (such as problem-solving) are high-performing countries using that we aren t?
