This research was driven by an interest to investigate whether the demographic variable like teaching field have any significant difference on teachers’ delivery effectiveness (TDE) in relation with the implementation of HOTS teaching in the classrooms. The hypothesis H1 was formulated, and tested in this study. The sample size consisted of 410 teachers. Data were analysed using inferential statistics – independent t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The weight of statistical evident showed that there is a significant difference amongst teachers with different teaching field and TDE in relation to HOTS implementation in the states of Kedah, Perak, Penang, and Perlis. The overall results showed that there is a significant difference amongst teachers of different teaching field and TDE in the context of classroom management behaviour, classroom management strategy, student attention, students’ review and practice, questioning skills, students’ need progress, teaching method, classroom climate, self-concept in learners, and classroom environment. The results indicated that teachers with different teaching field can influence teachers’ delivery effectiveness.
