This paper links the scale of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to the scale of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The purpose of this linking is to project the NAEP achievement levels onto the TIMSS scale.
This report compares three mathematics assessments conducted in 2003, and aims to provide information useful for interpreting and comparing results from the three assessments, based on an in-depth look at the content of the frameworks and items.
This report compares the content of two science assessments for grades 4 and 8, and provides information useful for interpreting and comparing results from the two assessments, based on an in-depth look at the content of the respective frameworks and assessment items.
This paper is a contribution to test translation review. It provides a conceptual framework for the coding of translation errors, and provides some empirical evidence on the effect of translation errors on student performance.
Singaporean students ranked first in the world in mathematics on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)-2003; U.S. students ranked 16th out of 46 participating nations at grade 8. This exploratory study compares key features of the Singapore and U.S. mathematics systems in the primary grades, when students need to build a strong mathematics foundation.
