In this context a more nationally consistent approach to assessment seems inevitable.At the same time, there is increasing interest in assessment in a learning culture and with quality teacher assessment as central to local and systemic efforts to improve student learning.

It will discuss an approach to building a sustainable assessment culture and include:•, principles for quality assessment practice•, alignment of curriculum, achievement standards, assessment and reporting•, application of the Australian Curriculum achievement standards•, achieving consistency of teacher judgment•, the role of moderation•, the place of testing.The paper draws on nearly 40 years of experience and practice of standards-based, school-based assessment in Queensland. It proposes how this can inform classroom practice and reporting ,student achievement in Prep to Year 10.
