This report presents an instrument designed as a profile of teacher
achievement and teacher needs with respect to the probability and statistics strands in
the mathematics curriculum. In developing the profiling instrument, I had two primary
objectives. First, the instrument was to assist in the assessment of teacher achievement in
the context of the adoption of professional standards for mathematics teachers. Second,
the instrument was to assess professional development needs for teachers in the light
of changes to the mathematics curriculum. The background for the development of the
instrument is presented, followed by a description of the instrument and the results of
responses to the instrument from 43 Australian teachers. Uses for the instrument and
further development possibilities are discussed.
