years = c(2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019),
cache = FALSE,
verbose = TRUE
)


### Arguments

 root a character string indicating the directory where the TIMSS data should be stored. Files are placed in a subdirectory named TIMSS/[year]. years an integer vector of the assessment years to download. Valid years are 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019. cache a logical value set to process and cache the text (.txt) version of files. This takes a very long time but saves time for future uses of the data. Default value is FALSE. verbose a logical value to either print or suppress status message output. The default value is TRUE.
