How a centrally managed focus on aligning curriculum, assessment and reporting can exert positive influences on teacher practice

The Queensland Curriculum Assessment and Reporting (QCAR) Framework project is designed to align curriculum with assessment for student learning and the way student learning is reported. The objective is to improve the quality of learning for students in Queensland, Australia by supporting the development of teachers’, assessment capabilities. Assessment within the QCAR Framework represents an interrelationship between principles of coherent high-quality assessment systems that are instantiated through centrally-devised common assessment tasks, and the everyday practice of teachers. Pivotal to influencing everyday practice is the online Assessment Bank that provides teachers with a repository of high-quality, current and exemplary assessment items and resources. The common assessment tasks challenge the learner to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding in meaningful contexts, and provide teachers with rich information about student learning. Assessment within the QCAR Framework values the professional judgment of teachers and demonstrates how assessment that measures notjust what students know but how students work with knowing, assists teachers in improving learning.
