Abstract: The main aim of this contribution is to analyze the study outcomes in mathematics, which are an important indicator in assessing the quality of university education. We focused on students' knowledge in solving the tasks of mathematical analysis and linear algebra. Method of statistical testing of hypothesis was used to evaluate and analyze the results of students in selected tasks. The obtained number of points in math tasks became the object of hypotheses which were verified by methods of F-test and t-test. Knowledge and skills acquired from mathematics will be useful basis for the study of another exact methods and procedures from mathematics and statistics. It is assumed that students will apply these methods in the analysis of empirical data in the bachelor and diploma theses.
Keywords: mathematics education, study outcomes, quality of education, statistical hypothesis testing, employment of graduates, food science
