Evaluating Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching Using TKAS

Summary

The Teacher Knowledge Assessment System (TKAS) is an online system for administering the Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) assessment questions. LMT assessments focus on the specialized forms of knowledge teachers' use in providing their students opportunities to develop deep mathematical knowledge. This session will provide an overview of the LMT assessments with a focus on the link between teachers' specialized knowledge, instruction, and student learning. The session will also provide a practical overview of the available LMT assessments and the feature available in online TKAS system for administering and analyzing LMT measures. We will also discuss how the TKAS system will be used to conduct a large-scale meta-analysis of MSPs and other professional development programs.
