Mathematical Quality of Instruction (MQI)

The MQI is a Common Core-aligned observational rubric that provides a framework for analyzing mathematics instruction in several domains. Within each of the five domains, individual codes contain score points that categorize instruction into different levels of quality. The MQI was developed in order to provide a both multidimensional and balanced view of mathematics instruction.

NCTE Student Assessments

Developed jointly by Harvard and Educational Testing Services (ETS), the NCTE Student Assessment is an open resource for use by researchers and practitioners (not commercial ventures). The assessment was designed to be sensitive to teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching and instruction, and to measure gains resulting from teacher professional development. Additionally, the NCTE Student Assessments are aligned to the 4th and 5th grade Common Core Standards in Mathematics.
