ACER’s higher education assessment services include the design, development and analysis of tests, as well as the provision of innovative, specialised reports. Assessment formats include: customised large scale programs for systems and institutions; secure, high-stakes tests; institution-managed assessments; and computer-assisted diagnostic assessments.

ACER has specialised test development teams in a range of discipline areas, and a team of professional data processing staff with expertise in programming and data management who work alongside psychometricians. Teams manage the full assessment administration process: candidate registrations, candidate communication, test centre management, test supervision, test security and reporting of results. Efficient field operations and integrated quality control mechanisms underpin all projects.
