Posted by Mia on Saturday, December 21, 2013 · Leave a Comment
According to the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, which compared Massachusetts with foreign countries, the state’s eighthgraders ranked second in the world in science behind only Singapore.
The same study ranked Massachusetts eighthgraders sixth in the world in math, placing behind Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan.
The United States as a whole placed 10th in science and ninth in math, with overall scores placing above the international average.
In the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment, a triennial survey of 15yearolds, Massachusetts tied for 10th in mathematics literacy and seventh in science literacy among 65 participating countries and education systems.
Local districts are also showing growth in math and science education based on annual MCAS tests that measure improvement in those areas.
