Beatty, I. D. (2008). TPPI: The TLT Pedagogical Perspectives Interview (technical report beatty-2008tpp). Amherst, MA: University of Massachusetts Scientific Reasoning Research Institute.

The TLT Pedagogical Perspectives Interview (TPPI) is a two-part semi-structured interview designed to elicit a practicing teacher's outlook on several general and specific aspects of teaching, including teaching goals, views on classroom roles, beliefs about learning, and orientation towards formative assessment, wholeclass discussion, student motivation, flexible class planning, and reflective improvement of practice. We expect these aspects impact a teacher's response to the Technology-Enhanced Formative Assessment (TEFA) pedagogy, or to be impacted by professional development focused on TEFA. The instrument has been field-tested with 22 science and mathematics teachers at two different schools, and analysis of data collected with it is in progress.
