Unpacking Pedagogical Content Knowledge: Conceptualizing and Measuring Teachers' Topic-Specific Knowledge of Students
Hill, Heather C.; Ball, Deborah Loewenberg; Schilling, Stephen G.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v39 n4 p372-400 Jul 2008
There is widespread agreement that effective teachers have unique knowledge of students' mathematical ideas and thinking. However, few scholars have focused on conceptualizing this domain, and even fewer have focused on measuring this knowledge. In this article, we describe an effort to conceptualize and develop measures of teachers' combined knowledge of content and students by writing, piloting, and analyzing results from multiple-choice items. (Contains 3 footnotes, 4 tables, and 2 figures.)
