Presentation by Robert Hassell - Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER).
Since 2012 all Australian States and territories, and the Federal government, have endorsed an approach to school improvement that was originally developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research in conjunction with the Queensland State Government. While there is an increasing trend towards autonomy of school leadership, all schools in Australia are expected to write a school improvement plan. Rather than focusing purely on desired outcomes, the approach is based on the view that the most effective strategy for improving student achievement in schools is to improve the quality of day-to-day teaching and learning. In this presentation I will outline the research and development underpinning the National School Improvement Tool (ACER, 2012) and its current use for school improvement review and planning that focuses on these important behaviours.
