TIMSS Numeracy was introduced by the International Association for the Evaluation of educational Achievement (IEA) for countries where students are still developing fundamental mathematics skills. The TIMSS Numeracy assessment concentrates on measuring children’s numeracy learning outcomes, including fundamental mathematical knowledge, procedures, and problem-solving strategies. South Africa assessed these measures for the first time in 2014, at the Grade 5 level.  The results of this study will be released in 2015.
