Reliability of the Content Knowledge for Teaching-Mathematics Instrument for Pre-Service Teachers
Gleason, Jim
Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, v1 Jan 2010
The Content Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics instrument was developed by the Study for Instructional Improvement and Learning Mathematics for Teaching projects at the University of Michigan to measure elementary school and middle school in-service teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching to assist in the evaluation of professional development programs for mathematics teachers. This instrument is currently in widespread use among colleges and universities for the purpose of evaluating mathematics education programs for prospective elementary and middle school teachers. Since this is an "off-label" use of this instrument, this article establishes the reliability of the instrument among this new population of pre-service teachers. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
