Frequently Asked Questions About the Video Study

How is the 1999 Video Study related to the 1995 study?

One of the key hypotheses that emerged from the 1995 Video Study was that different countries have distinct cultural patterns of teaching. With this in mind, the 1999 Video Study was designed with a coding system that captured features considered essential from each country's perspective. The 1999 study also expanded the number of countries studied in order to compare teaching practices in multiple high-achieving nations, in particular, those that outperformed the United States on TIMSS. The 1999 study built upon the coding scheme developed for the 1995 study, expanding and further developing its key ideas.
