Title: TIMSS 1999 Video Study of eighth-grade mathematics and science teaching restricted-use database and videos
Description: The TIMSS 1999 Video Study focused on eighth-grade mathematics and science teaching in seven countries, including the United States. The data collected from the study are now available under a restricted-use license.
The database includes:
  • full-length videos of grade 8 mathematics and science teaching
  • transcripts (in original language and English)
  • background questionnaires
  • ancillary classroom materials (e.g., worksheets, textbook pages)
  • results of coding of the video data
Separately, two technical reports-one for the mathematics portion of the study and another for the science portion--are available on the NCES website for downloading (NCES 2003012 and NCES 2011049). The technical reports include information on how the study was conducted as well as the coding manual and a data user's guide.
