An international collaborative research effort is underway to design and develop a geography assessment modeled on the highly successful Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The goal of the research is to identify characteristics of assessment design, implementation, and delivery that enable internationally valid and comparable inferences of geographic learning in lower secondary education settings. This session will present the four-year methodology for developing the assessment framework, item development, field testing, and delivery of the geography assessment to the TIMSS National Research Coordinators conference for formal review in 2021.
