The project is based on an analysis of problems in school education which were identified by the Czech educational research in 2001-2008. A number of the problems are related to the quality of curriculum and instruction. The two concepts are often mentioned in political slogans, however, they have not yet been established as scientific constructs. The aim of the project is to (1) introduce the concepts quality of curriculum and instruction as theoretical constructs, (2) develop instruments for their empirical research, and (3) carry out research studies on quality of curriculum and instruction in different school subjects (languages, maths and science, social sciences, aesthetics and sport). Three methodological principles are applied: (A) systematic approach, (B) content-process-oriented approach, (C) connecting the domainspecific and the domain-general perspectives – quality of curriculum and instruction is primarily investigated from the point of view of field didactics, but building on cross-curricular comparison, it will achieve generalizations across the subjects concerned.
