Abstract
In this study, the chemistry achievement of the Korean 8th grade students in the Third Inter-national Mathematics and Science Study-Repeat(TIMSS-R), which was administered internationally in 1999,was analyzed. By the 6th national curriculum, 31 chemistry problems were selected from the categories of 'classification of matter', 'structure of matter', 'chemical reactivity and transformations', 'physical properties and physical changes of matter', 'heat and temperature', 'subatomic particles', 'pollution', 'scientific method',and 'scientific measurements' among the total 143 problems. Based on the analysis of the percentage of cor-rectness on each problem, the weak and strong points of the 6th curriculum were discussed. The implications for the development of national curriculum and textbook are suggested.
