Frequently Asked Questions About the Video Study

What is the TIMSS 1999 Video Study?

The TIMSS 1999 Video Study examines teaching practices in the United States and six other relatively high-achieving countries as measured on the TIMSS 1995 mathematics assessment (Australia, the Czech Republic, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, the Netherlands, and Switzerland). Its novel approach in which eighth-grade mathematics and science lessons are videotaped allows for in-depth investigation of teaching as it is actually experienced by students in the classroom. The TIMSS 1999 Video Study is an update and expansion of the TIMSS 1995 Video Study, which examined videotapes of eighth-grade mathematics lessons in Germany, Japan, and the United States.
