Researchers who wish to analyze the data at their own institution and at their own convenience may obtain a copy of the data from National Center for Education Statistics. Data options available with license from NCES: 1. a full sample data set that includes all 236 lessons or 2. a sample subset of 90 lessons (30 from Germany, 30 from Japan and 30 from USA). Both sets include: 1. videos of the lessons in MPEG format on CD-ROM disks, 2. one CD-ROM containing English transcripts of each lesson; copies of all the supplementary materials used during the lessons; summary tables of the lessons; questionnaire responses from the teachers; SPSS data files of variables with a code book that describes each variable and a user guide that briefly explains these and 3. one CD-ROM containing a vPrism database file. This file is only accessible through the vPrism software.This is EXCITING data for graduate student analysis! Perhaps the video study data for the current science and math TIMSS-R video classroom studies will be available to those who learn this level of data analysis in the near future.Technical Remarks:v-Prism software (http://www.lessonlab.com/vprism/index.htm) is NOT required, but is a powerful tool for this data analysis.
