Abstract

TESS-India is a project funded by UK Aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) and led by The Open University, UK. It aims to address the urgent need to improve the classroom practices of teachers and teacher educators as this is essential for successful educational reform. TESS-India seeks to contribute significantly towards the professional development of teacher educators and teachers in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Karnataka, Assam and West Bengal.

The project's goal is to encourage student-centric, active teaching and learning pedagogies at both elementary and secondary school levels across India. TESS-India seeks to do this through use of high-quality Teacher Development Units (TDUs) and Leadership Development Units (LDUs) by teachers and school leaders in their everyday work. However, before launching the project and making the interventions it was necessary to establish a baseline to determine the status of teacher education in the states and to learn about the current situation relating to attitudes and practices of teachers and teacher educators about student-focussed participatory pedagogy and professional development in order to provide a base for comparison with similar data to be collected at different stages in the future.

This report presents the findings of the TESS-India Baseline Study conducted on a sample basis in three project states of Uttar Pradesh (UP), Bihar and Madhya Pradesh (MP) in Sep-Nov 2013.
