With view on the outcome of teaching, much recent research focuses on how teachers and their teaching can be effective, often summarized with the term teacher effectiveness (Brophy, 56 1999). Yet, this results in the challenge that the empirical measurement of causal relations between teacher professionalism or teaching quality and student achievement is statistically difficult to establish due to the large range of covariates that need to be controlled. “There are numerous factors that influence student achievement, including past educational experiences, home and neighbourhood experiences, socioeconomic status, disability status, the classroom teacher, and so on” (Caffrey & Kuenzi, 2010, p.
Yet, a detailed examination of the training’s concepts is missing (Fuller, 1987, p. 281). Scheerens refers to the considerable higher influence of “resource input factors“ – to which also the education of teachers belongs – on student achievement in development cooperation countries in contrast to developed countries (cf. Hanushek, 1997; Scheerens, 2001, p. 362). For Botswana a significant connection was found between the subject competencies of teachers in mathematics and in reading with student achievement (Nguyen, Wu, & Gillis, 2005).
