Sat Math Equivalent (SATME)

bullet

The SAT Math Equivalent (SATME) by country is based on each country's 8th grade IAEP Math and 12th grade TIMSS Geometry scores and the crosslink study between NAEP & IAEP scores.

bullet

This score enables a cross country comparison of education factors like cost, class size, TV viewing, time in classrooms, sex of teachers, single-sex classrooms and the percent of correct answers on each question.

bullet

One SAT Math point is equivalent to two TIMSS points and12 IAEP points.

bullet

For Figure 13, an SATME score of 495 is equivalent to zero percent correct.
