Highlights From the TIMSS 1999 Video Study of Eighth-Grade Science Teaching. NCES 2006-017
National Center for Education Statistics
The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 1999 Video Study is a follow-up and expansion of the TIMSS 1995 Video Study of mathematics teaching. Larger and more ambitious than the first, the 1999 study investigated eighth-grade science teaching as well as mathematics teaching, expanded the number of countries, and included more countries with relatively high achievement on TIMSS assessments in comparison to the United States. The purpose of this report is to introduce new NCES survey data through the presentation of selected descriptive information. Readers are cautioned not to draw causal inferences based solely on the bivariate results presented. It is important to note that many of the variables examined in this report are related to one another, and complex interactions and relationships have not been explored here. Release of the report is intended to make the information available to the public and encourage more in-depth analysis of the data. (Contains 2 endnotes, 3 tables, and 10 figures.)
