Abstract: 

Objective operation of educational system could guaranty the national development of any countries. Whatever educated work force, scientists and engineers have learnt from training processes is a lever to country economic circulation, growth domestic product and individual money making as well. Given to fixing other effective factors, it is expected that in a well-structured educational system in favor of national goals, all people can gain equal benefits from that education system. One of the most important evaluation criteria of educational system performance is national and international standard testing programs. These testing programs which have been implementing for assessing students cognitive growth illustrate how well the students of a country can benefit from an educational system. This research was conducted to investigate performances of mathematics and technical group in national math and physics sub tests in Iranian provinces.
We compared the results according to the provinces and gender from 1387 to 1391. Also, to understanding Iran’s provinces placement over international continuum on the international test, TIMSS, some statistical indexes have been reported. This study has been accomplished by ex post facto design and repeated measurement method was used to analyze providences’ data.
Data sets were collected from National Organization of Educational Testing databank and reported tables of National Study Center of TIMSS and PIRLS. During these 5 years, results were shown that distances between high performance provinces compare to deprived provinces have been fixed about 4 to 5 standard deviation on standard z scale. Girls’ mean performance is lower than boys, and students who come from low performance provinces in international tests also are weak on national tests.
