TIMSS: Fourth grade students reaching the low international benchmark of science achievement (%)

sourceNote
TIMSS: Fourth grade students reaching the low international benchmark of science achievement (%) is the share of 4th grade students scoring at least 400 on the science assessment. Students reaching this benchmark show basic knowledge of life and physical sciences. Students demonstrate some basic knowledge of behavioral and physical characteristics of plants and animals as well as of the interaction of living things with their environments, and apply knowledge of some facts related to human health. Students show basic knowledge of states of matter and physical properties of matter. They interpret simple diagrams, complete simple tables, and provide short, fact-based written responses. Data reflect country performance in the stated year according to TIMSS reports, but may not be comparable across years or countries.
