Assessing Subject-Specific Competences in Teacher Education in Mathematics and Economics
Welcome to the project website „Assessing Subject-Specific Competencies in Teacher Education in Mathematics and Economics – A Quasi-Experimental Validation Study with a Focus on Domain-Specificity (ELMaWi)“.
In a quasi-experimental validation study with pre-service and in-service teachers of mathematics and economics, the project ELMaWi (03/2016-02/2019; sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)) pursues two key objectives:
- to examine by means of innovative assessment designs the validity of the assessment of subject-specific teacher competency, that is, their knowledge as well as their ability to respond appropriately in challenging situations in the classroom, and
- to examine the validity of the modeling of domain-specific and generic components of teacher competency.
The collaborative project is a cooperation between the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education in Kiel (IPN, Department of Mathematics Education, BMBF-FKZ: 01PK15012A) and the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (JGU, Chair of Business Education, BMBF-FKZ: 01PK15012B).
