Some Thoughts on Doctoral Preparation in Mathematics Education

Arguments for significantly improving doctoral programs have long been made, both nationally (Bender, 1997; Jackson, 1996; Golde & Walker, 2006; Walker, et al., 2007) and internationally (Cumming, 2010). The nature and variety of doctoral programs makes it difficult to single out specific changes that would be equally applicable to every discipline-specific doctoral program. Therefore, this commentary will focus on doctoral programs and doctoral preparation in mathematics education.

A Recent History of the Production of Doctorates in Mathematics Education

Institutions in the United States have been producing PhDs in mathematics education for more than a century. Teachers College at Columbia University and the University of Chicago produced the first graduates in mathematics education in 1906 and 1912, respectively. In those institutions, doctoral students in mathematics education typically took courses along with doctoral students in mathematics. However, the dissertation research took a different direction as doctorates in mathematics education focused on issues related to mathematics learning, teaching, or curriculum.

Profile of research preparation of doctorates in mathematics education in the United States

Research has documented that doctoral preparation in mathematics education varies greatly across institutions of higher education (McIntosh and Crosswhite [13], Reys and Kilpatrick [18], Reys and Dossey [15]). This study reports data gathered from over 500 doctoral graduates in mathematics education from 23 institutions in the USA from 1997 to 2014 as they self-assessed their research preparation during their doctoral program. At least 80% of the doctoral graduates rated their preparation as adequate or very well addressed for qualitative methods and quantitative methods.
