Abstract

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) is congressionally mandated to report on the state of education in the United States and other countries. To carry out this mission, NCES participates in several international assessments to measure how the performance of U.S. students and adults compares with that of their counterparts in other countries. This special analysis looks closely at the information NCES has gathered from recent international studies that U.S. students have participated in: the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). This special analysis describes the most recent results from these international studies as well as trends in the results, when possible. It is organized by subject area into three parts—reading, mathematics, and science.
