Subject: Announcing Launch of New TIMSS Video Public Use Website

Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce that the 53 public use lessons collected as
part of the TIMSS video studies are now available for everyone on a
new website, timssvideo.com. Users must register on the site to access
the videos, but registration is free. In addition to the 53
full-length videos of eighth-grade mathematics and science lessons
from seven countries, the site also provides full English-translation
subtitles for each lesson, a searchable transcript, and a set of
resources collected with each lesson such as scanned text materials
and teacher commentaries. The site also includes a discussion forum
where users can share ideas for how they are using the site, and
suggest new features that might be added in the future. The site is a
project of UCLA and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of
Teaching. Funding was provided by The William and Flora Hewlett
Foundation.
Please explore the site, and feedback is always welcome!
~Jim Stigler, UCLA
