Florida students’ performance on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study aren’t anything to be proud of: Florida 8th-graders lag U.S. in math, science.
The results showed that Florida eighth-graders performed worse than the rest of the U.S. in math and science, while fourth-graders fared about as well.
The really interesting results, though, come at the end of the story (these are U.S. stats, not Florida):
The results don’t show any significant difference between eighth-grade boys and girls in math, and a small difference between girls and boys in eighth-grade science.
Boys in 12th grade scored 46 points higher than girls in physics and 30 points higher than girls in advanced math, according to the report.
“The story is much different for advanced twelfth-graders,” Carr said.
You can plow through tons of data, including Florida stats, here: Welcome to TIMSS and TIMSS Advanced Results from 2015. The only state that has separate data available is Florida. It looks like no other state opted to pay for their own results.
