|Title||International Comparisons in Mathematics Education: An Overview|
The paper opens with an overview of the discussion of international comparisons (including goals) in mathematics education. Afterwards, the two most important recent international studies, the PISA Study and TIMSSRepeat, are described. After a short description of the qualitative-quantitative debate, a qualitatively oriented small-scale study is described. The paper closes with reflection on the possibilities and limitations of such studies.
