TIMSS: Eighth grade students reaching the advanced international benchmark of mathematics achievement (%) is the share of 8th grade students scoring at least 625 on the mathematics assessment. Students at this benchmark can apply and reason in a variety of problem situations, solve linear equations, and make generalizations. They can solve a variety of fraction, proportion, and percent problems and justify their conclusions. Students can use their knowledge of geometric figures to solve a wide range of problems about area. They demonstrate understanding of the meaning of averages and can solve problems involving expected values.
