International Comparative Analysis of Learning and Teaching

The ICALT3 project is a research project on teaching quality from an international perspective initiated by researchers from the Teacher Education department of the University of Groningen (the Netherlands). In this project, researchers from different countries collaborate to study the (development of) teaching quality around the world.


The ICALT3 project has its roots in research initiatives aimed at developing and improving the capacity of educational systems worldwide to engage in effective strategies for educational improvement and, particularly, in successful professional development of teachers.

The initiative has a long tradition in studies starting in the mid-1990s and focused on investigating teaching practices of primary and secondary school teachers in the Netherlands and various European countries.

Its predecessors, the ICALT1 and ICALT2 projects founded by Prof. Wim van de Grift provided insights into identifying and measuring effective teaching behaviors at primary school level. In the ICALT3 project, we use the measures developed in previous projects to gain insight in (the development of) teaching practices over time across various countries.
