Description

Measures of student achievement are regularly used in the development and evaluation of education policy. This can include the relative achievement of sub-groups in the community (such as the Closing the Gap targets for Indigenous students), an assessment of demand (such as university entrance scores) and for international comparisons.

This guide provides a brief overview of the major national and international measures of school student achievement that are conducted and used in Australia.
