The calculator calculates your prevailing conception of geography. As the calculator works with different conceptions of geography teaching, it is not possible that all the offered options are essential for you.
Do you want the results from the calculator to be as accurate as possible?
Choose according to what you really consider essential/decisive/key in the teaching of geography and what, on the other hand, is completely marginal. Essential in relation to possibilities, circumstances and your relationship to geography as a field.
Sometimes it can be the case that you may not consider the offered options to be important in teaching, because you simply may not understand them very well.
(You will spend 5-7 minutes in the calculator, and please note that it is NOT possible to go back and check your answers.)
How does the calculator work?
The whole principle of the calculator is simple. In the past, we collected a large amount of representative data on geography teachers’ conceptions of teaching. These data and the results form reference values or the framework for calculating your values and placing them in the correct group of conceptions. The next step is focused on calculating your prevailing conception. In each conception, you achieve some values, we focus on the least significant value, the one that surpasses the other values. Again, with the help of reference values, we are able to tell you which is your prevailing conception.
