IEA partners with RM Results to deliver online TIMSS assessment

IEA and the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center at Boston College will be working with RM Results on TIMSS, to develop innovative new assessment items to capture rich data about the breadth and depth of these subjects as they are taught in the participating countries. RM Assessment Master will also be used to collect detailed information about the curriculum, curriculum implementation and the context of schooling.

John Baskerville, Managing Director of RM Results commented, “We are tremendously proud that the IEA have selected Assessment Master to deliver the TIMSS studies online. We are excited to be working with both IEA and Boston College on these high profile studies.”

Ina Mullis and Michael Martin, Executive Directors of the TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center, Boston College commented, “We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with RM Results as we work to adapt the Assessment Master to the exacting demands of the TIMSS international assessments of mathematics and science.” This project will complement the work already underway to transition the 2021 Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) to onscreen assessment, which will also use RM Assessment Master.
