The Multi-dimensional Nature of Mathematics Instructional Quality: A First Look at Teacher and Teaching Elements that Contribute to Student Outcomes

In this webinar, we will present first results from a study that examines how teacher mathematical knowledge, their mathematics teaching, and other key variables relate to student outcomes. This study features quantitative analyses with a sample of 250 teachers and their students, as as well as more exploratory analyses of teachers with high and low VAM scores. We find that several dimensions of mathematics teaching appear both related to student outcomes and distinct from one another, suggesting that mathematics teaching is multidimensional in nature.
