The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is a project of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The IEA is an independent international cooperative of national research institutions and government agencies that has been conducting studies of cross-national achievement since 1959.

The Autonomous Region of The Basque Country took part officially in the TIMSS 2003 project with its own sample, and will take part too in the current cycle, TIMSS 2007.

The regular four-year cycle of TIMSS studies provides countries with an unprecedented opportunity to measure progress in educational achievement in Mathematics and Science.

Additionally, for each participating country, this is a rich resource for interpreting the achievement results and tracking changes in instructional practices along the time. Being this the second time The Basque Country takes part in this evaluation, it will provide with data about the development of the Basque Education System, in the mentioned subjects.

TIMSS asks students, their teachers, and their school management teams to complete questionnaires about the contexts for learning Mathematics and Science. Trend data from these questionnaires provide a dynamic picture of changes in the implementation of educational policies and practices and help in the improvement efforts, as well.
