This session will outline the key features of ACER’s new assessment: PAT STEM. It includes discussion of how schools can use PAT STEM to assess students’ science, technology, engineering, and mathematics understandings.

The session explains how and why the new assessment was developed, and explains how teachers can read and analyse their students’ PAT STEM reports.
