Teaching and Learning in Primary and Upper Secondary Education

image of New Insights from TALIS 2013

The Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) asks teachers and principals who they are, where they teach and how they feel about their work. The results on lower secondary schools were published in TALIS 2013 Results: An International Perspective on Teaching and Learning. A few countries chose to also conduct the survey in primary and/or upper secondary education. This report presents the results of these options and offers a broader view of teachers and school principals across all levels of compulsory education, and all the similarities and differences in the issues they are facing.


Cross-level comparisons

This chapter draws from the analyses presented in the previous chapters of this report as well as the TALIS 2013 Results: An International Perspective on Teaching and Learning (OECD, 2014) report to provide comparisons between primary, lower secondary and upper secondary school teachers. In doing so, it examines teachers’ characteristics, profiles of the schools they work in, classroom characteristics, professional development, teaching practices and feelings and attitudes toward their profession. The comparisons are made across the countries with data available from at least two of these educational levels.
