The MQuITE project seeks to develop and implement a context-appropriate approach to measuring quality in initial teacher education. As a result, the focus of this literature review is on the various conceptualisations and measures of “quality” vis-à-vis teaching, teachers, and initial teacher education (ITE) across the globe. As Scotland considers what types of programmes and routes best prepare teachers for success in the classroom, there is a glaring need for a collaboratively-created framework with which to measure the quality of teacher preparation programmes. Such a framework would not only provide data to inform external evaluation and internal improvement but also provide a coherent and consistent model with which to compare the strengths, weaknesses, and innovative features of the various pathways into teaching.
