PAT is part of ACER's range of evidence-based assessments that support schools in more than 70 countries to target their teaching and learning.
Measuring a student’s knowledge, skills and understanding in a subject helps pinpoint where they are in their learning journey – and what they need to progress. Innovative adaptive assessments are now available.
Whatever your starting point, PAT professional learning will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to use data to improve student learning.
Progressive Achievement is the idea that all learners can be supported to demonstrate progress, regardless of starting point. It underpins much of ACER’s work, including the flagship PAT suite.
