The  CESA, AISSA, and SASPA in collaboration with the University of Melbourne’s Assessment Research Centre invite schools to be part of a collaborative pilot project that seeks to explore practical assistance to schools looking to create reliable responses to the challenge, “How might we recognise learning both with, and beyond the ATAR? “

This opportunity will begin as a pilot which will include action research and evaluation of other ways of recognising a broader range of knowledge, skills and capacities.

The Project Goals:

This project invites schools to:

  • Explore the “Learner Profile” and its’ potential as a transformative model of recognising learning that is fit for purpose and identifies a range of student dispositions and learning across the phases of schooling
  • Explore practical strategies aimed at developing, assessing and recognising student attainment in a capabilities and competencies that could inform a “Learner Profile”.
  • Develop assessments that are valid, reliable and authentic
  • Contribute to a cross-sectoral professional learning community where all schools are grappling with similar issues.

Selected schools will come together as a network to build collective knowledge which will then inform future work in this area. Over the next 2 years - 2020 & 2021 - teams will attend 8 professional learning days facilitated in Adelaide by the Assessment Research Centre from the University of Melbourne. Outcomes of this work will be captured in a publication that will inform strategic directions in this area.

What will success look like?

  • Schools have created models and prototypes to support accreditation of a broad range of learning and capabilities
  • Schools have informed the current conversation regarding the recognition and accreditation of a broad range of learning
  • Schools have engaged in assessment theory and practical application that assists in clearly articulating a progression of learning.

    Facilitator: Dr Sandra Milligan, University of Melbourne
