The Experience of New Teachers

Results from TALIS 2008

This publication provides a comprehensive analysis of the most important issues facing teachers during the early stages of their careers. The effectiveness of teachers fresh to the profession is an important policy issue, especially knowing the impact that teachers have on student learning.

The OECD’s Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) is the first and only international survey on the conditions of teaching and learning. This report uses the TALIS 2008 dataset to analyse key aspects of new teachers’ work and highlight policy implications.

While TALIS 2008 does not include any external judgement of individual teacher’s effectiveness, teachers are asked to report on their own feelings of self-efficacy. These reports encompass a number of aspects of teaching such as teacher’s reports of their success with their students. An important aspect of effective classroom teaching is time-on-task. The amount of classroom time that new teachers spend on teaching, compared to more experienced teachers, is also discussed in this chapter. In addition, the time that new teachers devote to administrative duties and classroom management issues is examined in relation to the amount of time spent on teaching and learning.
