TEDS-M is the first empirical cross-national study of teacher preparation to collect data on the organization, curriculum, processes, and outcomes of teacher education from national probability samples of institutions, teaching staff, and students in 17 countries (Botswana, Canada, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Georgia, Germany, Malaysia, Norway, Oman, Philippines, Poland, Russian Federation, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, and the United States). TEDS-M was designed to focus on the outcomes of the mathematics preparation of teachers at the primary and lower secondary levels and to serve as a valuable tool to help inform and develop mathematics teacher preparation policy for future mathematics teachers.

The TEDS-M study was carried out under the aegis of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and was made possible by a major grant from the US National Science Foundation. The College of Education at Michigan State University (MSU)...
