The survey focused on the mathematics and science performance of 13-year-old students (14 countries also assessed 9-year-olds in the same subjects) as part of the Second IAEP. The curriculum model adopted by the study was similar to SIMS. While recognizing the fundamental differences in intended curriculum from country to country, the participants assembled tests that focused on the common elements of their curricula. In order to form the context for interpreting these student achievement data, they added sets of questions about students’ home background and classroom experiences and characteristics of the schools they attended.

China includes Mainland China, Taiwan. Hong Kong and Macao, but in the comparative studies they were regarded as separate education systems. Taking TIMSS as an example, in 1995, 9-year-old students from Hong Kong outperformed all other Western countries (Mullis et al. 1997). This pattern of achievement was confirmed by TIMSS-Repeat in 1999, in which the mathematics performance of eighth-grade students in Hong Kong was superior to that of any Western countries (Mullis et al. 2000). It was further confirmed by TIMSS 2007 (Mullis et al.

Many countries experienced curricula reform and change, mainly due to the influence of the new mathematics movement. In general, it was found that for most countries, curricula emphasis given to the study of geometry had decreased, while importance given to the study of algebra had increased. The results of the SIMS provided countries with important data that was used to make decisions regarding further change in curriculum and instruction. However, in terms of limitations, the case study approach, suggested by Husen (1967b), was not adopted in the SIMS.
