31 Aug 2009
Description

Using examples from the Melbourne Declaration on the Educational Goals for Young Australians and from work completed by ACER, this paper examines the challenges of measuring and improving the non-academic outcomes of schooling.

The paper outlines common difficulties encountered when defining non-academic outcomes and establishing mechanisms to measure outcomes within schools, and the paper explores some of the misconceptions that are commonly associated with attempts to improve non-academic outcomes of schooling. In each case the challenges and misconceptions are accompanied by recommendations for approaches and strategies that can be used to address them.
