Through the SEC Collaborative, CCSSO conducted an alignment content analysis of the 2007 TIMSS Mathematics and Science education assessments for students at grades 4 and 8 and the 2006 PISA Mathematics and Science Literacy assessments for students at age 15 (i.e., TIMSS--Trends in Mathematics and Science Study, PISA--Program for International Student Assessment). The content analysis was completed using the methodology and content frameworks of the Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC). A goal of the project for CCSSO was to allow states to analyze the alignment of state content standards and assessments in relation to TIMSS and in relation to PISA.
