TESSA Research Theme 1: Does TESSA work?

This is where you will find formal reports about TESSA activity and related projects. 

TESSA supports improvements in teacher pedagogy so measuring impact is challenging. Nevertheless, drawing on quantitative and qualitative methods, we have evidence that using TESSA can led to improved teacher and teacher educator practice, and an increased awareness of opportunities for professional development. It works best when it is mediated and our work highlights how this might be effective.
