Between 2008 and 2015, ACER chronicled different schools’ assessment reform experiences, presented in web-based interactive timelines.

Staff at Emmanuel College (a secondary school based on two campuses, one co-ed and one boys only) initiated reforming their practice of assessing student learning just over a decade ago.

Staff at the school identified the following key elements as critical to their assessment reform efforts: whole-school commitment; culture of learning; educational research and instructional leadership; student data; capacity building; professional recognition and trust; and, resourcing.

The assessment reform process at Emmanuel College was continual, with teachers working together to regularly make refinements in response to all they had learnt about their students and their assessment practice.
