Improving teaching quality to enhance learning has become critical for academics, practitioners, and policymakers. However, very few studies compared the same lessons with various classroom observation instruments to examine whether classroom characteristics in different instruments are similar. This project aimed to conduct a secondary lesson observation analysis on 423 lesson videos selected from 14,000+ lesson videos previously collected in the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project. The analysis provided new data on the same lessons previously studied by the MET researchers but observed with two instruments. One internationally validated instrument was used in the international project by Maulana et al. (Sch Eff Sch Improv, 1-32, 2021) to explore the generic teaching characteristics in different countries, while the other instrument was developed purposively to characterise the differences between effective and inspiring teaching. The results allowed data comparisons across different projects that are not readily comparable because they used various classroom observation instruments. The results informed the relationships between effective and inspiring teaching.
