This study provides the information on demands and abilities in teaching graduates for the universities in Germany.
A specialised teacher module was developed in the framework of the German Cooperation Project for Graduate Tracer Studies.

The scale operationalises a model of teacher action based on guidelines published by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education.
Analyses are based on a sample of 937 teachers in training who graduated from the universities of Cologne and Münster, North Rhine-Westphalia, between 1 October 2007 and 30 September 2008.

Overall, the results of the first analyses emphasise the scale’s potential to provide insight into the demands for which students should be prepared by their teaching studies.
