© Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017. The development of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers presents an opportune moment to investigate and evaluate such standards, the nature of standards-based accreditation, and the impact of standardisation on pedagogy. This chapter investigates notions of 'quality teaching' and forming a 'quality teacher'. The chapter also holds up to the light the concept of a standard as a measure against which others can be judged, and the basis on which a standard assumes and accretes authority and credibility, and explores the extent to which teachers serve standards or vice versa. The study focuses on Australia's Graduate Level Standards, in particular.
