About Mari Lindström

I am a PhD student at the Departement of Education and Special Education. I also take part of the research school ASSESS (Assessment of Knowledge in Educational Systems) with a focus on assessment of knowledge in educational systems

The research interest is within 'Teacher knowledge base' which characterizes teacher competence. It includes pedagogical content knowledge as well as content knowledge of teachers mainly in mathematics, as well as effects of these on student performance and on interest and motivation for the subject. Large-scale international measurements and analyzes of these are included in the research work. National mapping materials and knowledge measurements are also an area of interest.
