Our school has been selected to take part in the TIMMS- (Trends in Mathematics and Science), Study 2019. This is an independent worldwide research study which takes place every 4 years in over 60 countries with pupils of 9-10 years, i.e. our P6 pupils.
It is extremely beneficial for pupils from Northern Ireland to take part as it directly influences education policy making here in Northern Ireland, as well as around the world.
All P6 pupils took home today a letter explaining in more detail about the study as well as a home questionnaire. Tomorrow, an independent Moderator will oversee administration of the assessments which consist of Maths and Science, multiple choice and open ended questions. The Moderator will also oversee and collect questionnaires to be completed by pupils.
Home questionnaires can be returned in the envelope provided and returned to the school for the Moderator to take away tomorrow.
Apologies for the short notification, but we only received the questionnaires and Parental letters by courier, over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
I thank you in advance for your support with this important study.
