This is the NFER national report for England, detailing England's achievement in TIMSS 2007. TIMSS is a worldwide research project, taking place every four years and providing data about trends in mathematics and science achievement over time. It assesses the knowledge and skills of pupils aged 9-10 and 13-14 around the world, and enables researchers to collect extensive background information about the quantity, quality, and content of teaching, which can be used to make comparisons between participating countries. A conference was held in London in May 2009 for teachers from schools which participated in TIMSS 2007.
