Dear Visitor

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the UNDP Arab Regional Office for TIMSS Study. This study is one of the initiatives adopted by the UNDP Regional Bureau of the Arab States based in New York with the aim of supporting educational reform in the Arab states.

This website was established to give its browser an array of up-to-date information, news and reports, as well as latest developments concerning the Arab countries’ participation in the Trends in Mathematics and Science Studies (TIMSS) 2007. TIMSS 2007 is the fourth comparison of mathematic and science achievement conducted by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement and in which a total of 15 Arab countries are currently participating.

The website also aims to provide its visitor with a view of the Regional Office objectives and its various activities, which was established early 2006 in Amman, Jordan to assist all Arab countries in participating in TIMSS 2007 study.

Dear visitor, I would like to welcome you once again to the UNDP Arab TIMSS 2007 Regional Office website, which I hope you will find interesting, as well as beneficial. Please feel free to contact us if further information is needed or to send us suggestions or ideas aimed at improving this website.
