TIMSS: Eighth grade students reaching the low international benchmark of science achievement (%) is the share of 8th grade students scoring at least 400 on the science assessment. Students at this benchmark can recognize some basic facts from the life and physical sciences. They have some knowledge of biology, and demonstrate some familiarity with physical phenomena. Students interpret simple pictorial diagrams, complete simple tables, and apply basic knowledge to practical situations. Data reflects country performance in the stated year according to TIMSS reports, but may not be comparable across years or countries.
