Dear Colleagues,

The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) has pioneered international comparative assessments of educational achievement in the 1960s to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of policies and practices across countries’ different systems of education. In particular, Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (abbreviated as TIMSS) is directed by IEA’s TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center at Boston College. TIMSS has the goal of helping participating countries make informed decisions about how to improve teaching and learning in science and mathematics. TIMSS is a regular programme of student assessment at the fourth and eighth grade that has been conducted every four years since 1995. TIMSS provides participating countries with a wealth of information about trends in the science and mathematics knowledge and skills of their respective students. At the heart of TIMSS is a wide-ranging state-of-the-art assessment of how well students master the essential science and mathematics content, concepts, and procedures that countries expect them to learn as they progress through primary and lower secondary school.
You are invited to submit a paper for inclusion in a special issue titled International Comparative Assessment of Science and Mathematics Achievement in TIMSS by EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (http://www.ejmste.com/).

This Special Issue will provide a platform for researchers to present new research findings and insights for the betterment of science and mathematics education, nationally and internationally.
