Education at a Glance 2009

OECD Indicators

image of Education at a Glance 2009

The 2009 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries’ performance. It provides a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators on the performance of education systems and represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally.

The indicators look at who participates in education, what is spent on it and how education systems operate and at the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes, from comparisons of students’ performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment. New material in this edition includes first results from the OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) on teacher practices as well as teacher appraisal and feedback; an analysis of the social benefits of education; information on long-term unemployment and involuntary part-time work among young adults; a review of trends in attainment; data on the incentives to invest in education which show the benefits of education in dollar amount across OECD countries; and a picture of excellence in education for 15-year-olds, based on findings from the PISA study.

How do teacher practices, beliefs and attitudes measure up?

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This indicator focuses on teacher practices, beliefs, and attitudes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life and to their general well-being. They also shape the learning environment and influence student motivation and achievement. Furthermore they can be expected to mediate the effects of job-related policies – such as changes in curricula for teachers’ initial education or professional development – on student learning. Data were collected from teachers in TALIS (Teaching and Learning International Survey) on teacher practices, beliefs and attitudes, and related issues such as classroom management practices, teacher professional activities, and job satisfaction. Analysis of this data has produced a number of important findings.
