IEA Compass: Female Science and Mathematics Teachers: Better Than They Think?

IEA Compass: Briefs in Education Series addresses issues of interest to a broad range of educational stakeholders, especially those involved in influencing educational decision and policymaking.

The 13th issue of IEA Compass brief “Female Science and Mathematics Teachers: Better Than They Think?” explores the relationship between teachers’ gender and students’ mathematics and science achievement, as well as gender differences in science and mathematics teachers’ self-efficacy and its relation to job satisfaction based on IEA’s Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2015 data.
Despite the conclusion, that there is no direct relationship between teacher gender and student achievement in science and mathematics, the results show that female science and mathematics teachers have lower self-efficacy than their male counterparts.
