Matching the Grade 8 TIMSS Item Pool to the Ontario Curriculum.
Lawson, Alexandra; Bordignon, Catherine; Nagy, Philip
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v28 n1 p87-102 2002
Studied the match between the Ontario (Canada) eighth grade curriculum for 1997 and the item pool of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and analyzed the matching process itself. Findings show that the 1997 curriculum is a better match to the TIMSS item pool, achieving the better match by enlarging the curriculum and shifting it downward. (SLD)
