Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the learning outcomes in the 2018 secondary school mathematics curriculum according to TIMSS-2019 cognitive domain skills by using qualitative research method and document analysis. The study evaluated a total of 215 learning outcome statements in the Secondary School (5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Grades) Mathematics Curriculum published by the Board of Education and Discipline according to learning domains and grade level, taking into account TIMSS cognitive domain skills. Since some of the learning outcome statements in the curriculum contain more than one level, 268 outcome statements were categorized. According to the findings obtained from the research, approximately 28% of all learning outcome are in knowing, 48% in applying, and 24% in reasoning cognitive domains. The cognitive domain of knowing is mostly observed in the 5th grade learning outcomes. The applying domain is mostly observed in the 7th grade. The reasoning domain is observed at the highest rate in the 8th grade while it is observed with the lowest rate in the 5th grade. Remarkably, the applying cognitive domain is included the most in all learning domains in the distribution of the cognitive characteristics of the learning outcomes based on the learning domains. While the cognitive domain of reasoning takes place in the data processing learning domain at the highest rate; the cognitive domain of knowing is mostly located in the learning domain of numbers and operations. 

Keywords: Secondary school curriculum, secondary school mathematics course, cognitive domain skills, TIMSS.
