Find­ing ways to make complex content accessible is at the heart of good teaching. According to the important and foundational work of Lee Shulman (1986), teachers of any subject or discipline need more than knowledge of their sub­ ject matter, or knowledge of good teaching methods. Shulman argues that teachers actually require a third form of knowledge he describes as ‘pedagogical content knowledge’. Whereas the content expert will hold deep and complex understandings of their disciplinary subject matter, the teaching specialist will also be equipped with a repertoire of pedagogical strategies that might include methods of conducting tutorials, organising and delivering lectures, or project supervision practices.

The items were: U: If 14 is put out, what number was put in? M: If we put in a 5, what number will the machine put out? R: If we got out a 41, what number was put in? EA: If x is the number that comes out of the machine, when the number y is put in, write down a formula which will give us the value of y whatever the value of x (Romberg et al. 1982, p. 8). It should be obvious that, while these examples are short answer questions, it is quite feasible to create easily-scored multiple choice questions for these categories.

SOLO Taxonomy categories (Hattie & Purdie 1998, p. 146) 1 Unistructural (U). One aspect of a task is picked up or understood and there is no relationship sought among the various facts or ideas in the given material. 2 Multistructural (M). Two or more aspects of a task are picked up or understood serially, but are not interrelated.
