This technical report is designed to provide researchers with an overview of the design and implementation of the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) 2013. This information is meant to supplement that presented in OECD publications by describing those aspects of TALIS 2013 that are unique to the United States.
Chapter 2 provides information about sampling requirements and sampling in the United States. Chapter 3 provides information on instrument development. Chapter 4 describes the details of how schools and teachers were recruited, and Chapter 5 describes field operations used for collecting data. Chapter 6 describes participation rates at the school and teacher level. Chapter 6 also includes nonresponse bias analysis (NRBA) results for unit-level and item-level response rates (details of the NRBA are provided in appendix E). Chapter 7 describes international activities related to data processing, and weighting. Chapter 8 describes the data available from both international and U.S. sources. Chapter 9 discusses some special issues involved in analyzing the TALIS 2013 U.S. data because of response rates below the international TALIS standards (as described in chapter 6) and also includes selected data tables from the international TALIS report. In addition, the technical report includes all recruitment materials used during the conduct of the study, the U.S. versions of the TALIS questionnaires, and a complete list of all adaptations made to the questionnaires.

|NCES 2014461||2011 NAEP-TIMSS Linking Study: Technical Report on the Linking Methodologies and Their Evaluations
This technical report describes several methods used to establish statistical links between the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the 2011 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in mathematics and science at grade 8. The goal of the 2011 NAEP-TIMSS linking study, supported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), was to obtain comparable TIMSS results for U.S. states that participated in NAEP but did not participate in TIMSS. Based on the results from the 2011 linking study, it was found that NAEP performance data can be expressed in the metric of TIMSS. By expressing both assessments in the same metric, the TIMSS mean and benchmark percentages that each state might have obtained (had that state actually taken TIMSS) can be reported and compared to international TIMSS results.
