Abstract

This study analyzed the questions related to the content knowledge of mathematics subject for the middle and high school teacher employment examination conducted from the school year of 2009 to 2012 based on the evaluation scope of the mathematics subject content knowledge and evaluation contents which were presented by the Korea Institute for Curriculum and Evaluation(KICE). To achieve the objectives of this study, a total of 105 questions were collected with respect to the questions that appeared on the test over the last 4 years which aimed to evaluate the level of applicants' knowledge related to the contents of mathematics subject. The ratio of the contents covered in the test was assessed based on the scope of evaluation and the items for evaluation among the 9 subjects. Based on the results, suggestions were presented in relation to the operation of the mathematics curriculum for the department of mathematics education at the college of education or the restructuring of the evaluation scope. There was a significant difference in the ratio of items that appeared on the test among the 9 subjects related to the content knowledge of mathematics. Also, there was a remarkable difference in the ratio of items covered in the test among the evaluation scope by subject. The results of analysis on the evaluation content items suggested that 149 items out of 256 items did not appear in the teacher employment examination for 4 years. Based on such results of analysis, this study discussed the need for readjusting the ratio of items covered in the test of content knowledge related to mathematics or the evaluation scope and evaluation content items.
