Meghan Shaughnessy, Timothy Boerst, and Deborah Loewenberg Ball have been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation for their project, Strengthening the Quality, Design and Usability of Simulations as Assessments of Teaching Practice. Assessments that simulate teaching practice, such as simulations that are used in the preparation of professionals in other fields, hold promise for initial teacher preparation. This project will explore crucial questions about the design and use of simulations of practice to assess preservice teachers’ readiness to engage in “high-leverage” mathematics teaching practices and their development of mathematical knowledge for teaching.
