September 14, 2012—The TIMSS 2011 Encyclopedia provides an overview of the national contexts for mathematics and science education in the countries participating in TIMSS 2011. Nearly all of the TIMSS 2011 countries and benchmarking participants prepared a chapter summarizing the structure of their education systems, mathematics and science curricula and instruction in primary and secondary grades, teacher education requirements, and assessment practices. Together with selected introductory data about the countries collected via questionnaires, the chapters comprising the TIMSS 2011 Encyclopedia provide an important resource for helping to understand the various settings for teaching and learning mathematics and science around the world, with particular emphasis on schooling through the eighth grade.
