Waarom scoort Oost-Azië zo hoog op TIMMS?

Vandaag verscheen niet alleen het rapport TIMMS 2015, maar verschenen ook de eerste commentaren daarop. De vraag hierboven werd door @YongZhaoEd beantwoord door eerst deze resultaten van TIMMS te noemen:.

  1. East Asian parents are not “very satisfied” with their schools.
  2. East Asian schools do not necessarily put a “very high emphasis” on academic success.
  3. East Asian teachers are not “very satisfied” with their jobs.
  4. East Asian students do not have a “high sense of school belonging.”
  5. East Asian students do not necessarily receive more classroom instruction compared to the U.S., Australia, Canada or England.
  6. East Asian systems are not the top users of computers in math lessons.
  7. East Asian students receive the least engaging math lessons in the world.
  8. East Asian students DO NOT “very much like learning mathematics”.
  9. East Asian students have very little confidence in mathematics.
  10. East Asian students don’t value math much.

Waar komt die hoge score in Oost-Azië dan vandaan, zo vragen wij ons vertwijfeld af.

Het antwoord is verrassend simpel: de eetstokjes!
