TIMSS 2007

The main objective of TIMSS is to assess what students around the world know and can do in Mathematics and Science. The major aim in TIMSS is to provide a rich source of information to policy makers, education managers, curriculum developers, teacher trainers, teachers, assessment bodies, researchers and all stakeholders on the outcome of learning Mathematics and Science and on how the various factors surrounding the learners relate to learning achievement. The project traces trends in the achievement of learners so as to inform participating nations whether learning is improving over time. An integral part of this project is the comparison of performances of the learners in the participating countries so that each country knows how their learners stand in the learning of Mathematics and Science. This study was completed during this period, after national dissemination in May and regional dissemination which was not completed until August 2009. The study indicated that the performance of Botswana students had declined compared to 2003.
