The Centre for Global Education Monitoring supports the monitoring of educational outcomes worldwide. It is essential that data be collected and used to inform policy aimed at improving educational progress for all learners.
ACER is advocating for the development of tools and methodologies that will enable countries to have control over monitoring their learning, while still allowing them to report results internationally.
As a technical partner of the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, ACER-GEM has created reporting scales for reading and maths, with the intention of enabling countries to examine and report the outcomes of their assessment activities using a common framework. The newly released report gives the theoretical and contextual background to the scales, and describes the steps in the drafting process.
