Registration for ACER Certificates

ACER is offering students the opportunity to gain independent academic recognition in Mathematics and Reading. Students can be registered by their parent or guardian, once their school is registered as an ACER Certificates school.

If you are ready to register, please visit the registration portals here:

Australian schools that have registered with ACER can offer their students the opportunity to sit a one-hour formal, online assessment at their school in April, June or November 2017 to gain an ACER Certificate in Mathematics or an ACER Certificate in Reading.

Students will receive a digital report on their results and, if successful, be awarded a formal ACER Certificate along with a lapel badge to acknowledge the level of achievement they have demonstrated.

ACER Certificates complement school-based learning and extend opportunities for student achievement and recognition.
