2 Where are we in the TIMSS-PIRLS timeline of activities? TA training: March Preassessment calls have begun Data collection begins April 4

3 How will assessment day logistics be handled with the schools? TAs will contact the schools to coordinate assessment logistics TAs will work with the SC to finalize forms

4 How will the schools be involved? Schools should – Coordinate the assessments – Identify space for the assessments – Notify parents – Collect completed questionnaires – Receive the honoraria

5 What will assessment day look like? Assessment teams will – Check in at the school office – Go to the predetermined work area – Work with the SC to set up and conduct assessments – Collect completed questionnaires

6 For grade 8, can the sessions be given together? TIMSS and NAEP-TIMSS Link have different timings and cannot be assessed together Sessions can be held concurrently

7 For grade 4, can the sessions be given together? TIMSS and PIRLS have different timings and cannot be assessed together Additional staff can be brought into the school so that – Sessions can be held concurrently – PIRLS can be held in a large space while TIMSS is held in another large space

During NAEP some 8 th grade students were administered booklets with TIMSS items During TIMSS some 8 th grade students were administered booklets with NAEP items Data allows for a statistical link and a projection of TIMSS scores for math and science in all states
