The analysis of TIMSS 2019 results of Azerbaijan in Terms of cognitive domains

The assessment of student knowledge and skills is a basis for increasing
success in education. In this way, all countries can evaluate their
educational system comparatively. As a result of these comparisons,
some new approaches in education have been emerging. Azerbaijan
also participates in important international student assessment programs.
One of these programs is TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics
and Science Study). It is an international study which
assesses the quality of primary and secondary education in mathematics
and natural sciences. Compared to the results of our first participation,
there was a significant increase in the performance of 4th
grade students representing us in TIMSS 2019. The article analyzes
the results of students in mathematics and natural sciences in different
directions in terms of cognitive areas.

Keywords: TIMSS 2019, mathematics, science, cognitive areas, knowing, applying, reasoning.
