Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) "investigates the mathematical knowledge needed for teaching, and how such knowledge develops as a result of experience and professional learning." LMT's items, available online through the Teacher Knowledge Assessment System (TKAS), measure teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching in elementary number and operations; elementary patterns, functions, and algebra; geometry (grades 38); rational numbers (grades 48); proportional reasoning (grades 48); and data, probability, and statistics (grades 48). See, in particular, research and results for freely downloadable articles such as "Developing Measures of Teachers' Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching," "Learning Mathematics for Teaching," "Effects of teachers' mathematical knowledge on student achievement," "Assessing Measures of Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching: A Validity Argument Approach," "Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis," "Teachers and Teaching," "Test Validation and the MKT Measures: Generalizations and Conclusions," "Validating the Ecological Assumption: The Relationship of Measure Scores to Classroom Teaching and Student Learning," "Validating the MKT Measures: Some Responses to the Commentaries," and "Assessing Elemental and Structural Validity: Data from Teachers, Nonteachers, and Mathematicians."
