Teacher knowledge tests

Definition
Examination of general or specific knowledge and skills teachers must master to be successful in teaching. ‘Certain countries employ a content or pedagogical knowledge test to verify the academic skills of teachers. Even if it is more frequently used in the appraisal for entry into the profession, in certain cases the summative teacher evaluation also relies on it’ (Childress et al., 2019: 86).
