This collaborative project seeks to advance our work on understanding the connection between mathematical knowledge for teaching community college algebra and the quality of instruction in college algebra classrooms.

The primary goals of the proposed project are to: (1) develop, pilot, field test, validate, and disseminate an instrument to measure mathematical knowledge for teaching community college algebra (MKT-CCA); (2) refine items in the Evaluating the Quality of Instruction in Post-Secondary Mathematics (EQIPM) video-coding instrument developed and tested by the Algebra Instruction at Community Colleges (AI@CC) project (NSF DUE 1561436) in order to address aspects of instruction that support diversity, equity and inclusion in mathematics classroom; and (3) explore the connection between the constructs that underlie both instruments. We will use a mixed methods design, that involves qualitative analysis of artifacts, item development and psychometric testing, and the input of community college faculty in all the phases of the study.
