! Interpret data with caution. The standard error is at least 30 percent but less than 50 percent of the estimate.
1 The international average is the average of the education systems that met the qualifying conditions, with each education system weighted equally. The United States did not meet the international standards for participation rates and, as a result, is not included in the international average and is shown separately from other education system estimates.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Mentoring activities refers to mentoring by or for teachers at the school. It does not refer to students within teacher education programs who are practicing as teachers at the school. S.E. means standard error. TALIS sampled teachers at ISCED Level 2, which in the United States is grades 7, 8, and 9. Education systems are listed alphabetically by nation and then by subnational entities.
