Around the world there has been increasing awareness of the need to protect the environment. To learn what the TIMSS 2019 science assessment tells us about students’ understanding of the environment, the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center constructed environmental awareness scales based on a wide range of topics as specified in the TIMSS science assessment frameworks. These include conservation, ecosystems, pollution, climate change, and cycles in nature. Watch the video for a summary of the overall results across TIMSS 2019 countries, and for some examples of TIMSS items that relate to human activities that can harm or benefit the environment.
