As part of the process of updating the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards, InTASC commissioned a review of research from 1990 to 2011 on the main topics addressed by the standards. These topics include instruction, assessment, teacher knowledge, learning environment, technology, planning and reflection, and teacher collaboration. The purpose of the literature review is to a) identify areas within the updated InTASC standards that are supported by empirical evidence and b) identify areas within the standards that are supported by normative arguments (as opposed to empirical research).

This synthesis paper briefly summarizes research on instruction (including instruction in bilingual education and special education), assessment, teacher knowledge, learning environment, technology, planning and reflection, and teacher collaboration. In addition, InTASC has prepared the following companion documents available on the CCSSO website:

a) InTASC Research Summaries by Standard -- a brief 2- to 3-page summary of the research reviewed for each InTASC standard and

b) InTASC Research Studies Templates by Standard -- a master template featuring detailed summaries of each study reviewed for each InTASC standard.
