Reporting Practices in Quantitative Teacher Education Research: One Look at the Evidence Cited in the AERA Panel Report Academic Article uri icon


  • The authors of this article examine the analytic and reporting features of research articles cited in Studying Teacher Education: The Report of the AERA Panel on Research and Teacher Education ( Cochran-Smith & Zeichner, 2005b ) that used quantitative reporting practices. Their purpose was to help to identify reporting practices that can be improved to further the creation of the best possible evidence base for teacher education. Their findings indicate that many study reports lack (a) effect sizes, (b) confidence intervals, and (c) reliability and validity coefficients. One possible solution is for journal editors to emphasize clearly the expectations established in Standards for Reporting on Empirical Social Science Research in AERA Publications ( AERA, 2006 ).
