These Threshold Learning Outcomes cover the degrees of Master of Education (both coursework and research), Master of Teaching and other specialist masters degrees in education offered by Australian Higher Education Providers (HEPs) that meet the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) specifications for Level 9 qualifications. These standards were developed as part of a demonstration project funded by the Australian Government in 2010-11 and facilitated by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Academic institutions and teachers, professional bodies, accreditation bodies, and graduates participated in the development of minimum threshold learning outcomes for the discipline.

Measuring student experience: relationships between teaching quality instruments (TQI) and course experience questionnaire (CEQ)

Results of course experience questionnaires (CEQ) provide Australian tertiary institutions with valuable information on perceptions of their courses. Institutions also survey their students at subject level. This study aimed to determine the degree to which responses recorded on subject level Teaching Quality Indicators (TQI) are related to the CEQ, and whether TQI responses anticipate subsequent CEQ responses.  This study found that TQIs at different institutions are not designed in a consistent manner and that only a small portion of the CEQ responses could be predicted by these TQI. The research established that course characteristics such as: the level of the degree, the Faculty and Department in which the course was taken, the course description, the industry and duties of those who have found employment after completing their course, all strongly influence the CEQ.
