Displaying and interrogating learning domains

ACER will investigate more effective ways of displaying and interrogating the structure of learning domains.

During 2016-19 work will be undertaken to investigate more effective ways of displaying and interrogating the structure of learning domains (sub-areas of learning; proficiency levels; illustrative examples of students’ work/responses). In a joint initiative, the Centre for Global Education Monitoring (GEM) and CARI are developing a general technology-based platform, the Learning Progression Explorer (LPE), an online tool that displays learning progressions and assessment results in domains for which progressions have been developed.

The priority in developing the LPE is to enable practitioners to display and explore the structure of the reading and mathematics domains (based on work currently underway to develop ACER described proficiency scales in these areas).
