A Systematic Review of the Research on the Knowledge and Skills of Australian Preservice Teachers
Stephenson, Jennifer
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v43 n4 Article 7 p121-137 Apr 2018
Since knowledge and skills related to curriculum content and pedagogy are crucial for teachers, it is of interest to explore the research relating to what preservice teachers know and can do. Refereed journal articles published between 2005 and 2015 that reported on the assessment of the knowledge or skills of Australian preservice teachers are reviewed. Data were extracted from 52 articles relating to the context of the research, participants in the research and the adequacy of the knowledge and skills of preservice teachers. Most authors expressed some concern about the level of knowledge and skills of preservice teachers and where both were reported there was often a discrepancy between perceived and actual knowledge.
