Key Areas

The work program of the GEM Centre revolves around three key areas:

System strengthening

ACER supports education systems in their aim to improve learning through capacity development and through high quality assessment and reporting programs adapted to specific contexts and requirements.


Learning metrics

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.


Reviews and analysis

ACER has reviewed existing national, regional and international learning assessments, currently focusing on assessments of student learning outcomes in reading, mathematics and science.
