On May 31, 2017 the American Institutes for Research hosted a presentation and discussion on a recently released report using data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) titled 20 Years of TIMSS. Since its first administration in 1995, the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) has become a prominent assessment of students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in Mathematics and Science.
Not only does TIMSS measure student achievement in mathematics and science, TIMSS also is designed to report on curriculum and instruction, as well as student background variables. TIMSS’ most recent administration in 2015 marks 20 years of this assessment being operationalized, which allows researchers and policy makers to gain a sense of changes in student achievement, curriculum and instruction, and student background variables over the last 20 years. This webinar focuses on the 20 Years of TIMSS report and digs deeper in to the educational shifts and changes that have occurred in education systems around the globe.
