This project addresses a key identified need in Australia: the provision of quality teachers of mathematics at all levels of the pre-tertiary system through evidence-based improvement of pre-service teacher education programs. It is timely in view of the recent development of national standards for Graduate Teachers and calls for greater accountability for tertiary institutions. The project will provide tools for universities to monitor their mathematics education courses in terms of students’ outcomes, and processes to bring about changes based on the evidence collected. It will provide guidance to teacher education institutions about effective programs and a model for other disciplines to develop accountability tools. Ultimately, the project will contribute to a national culture of evidence-based tertiary pre-service teacher education programs.
