PAT Professional Learning

In 2019 ACER is offering a suite of accredited PAT Professional Learning courses for leaders and teachers of primary and secondary schools.

Each course aims to assist schools to progress through an effective implementation of PAT, starting from the school’s current experience. On successful completion of each course, participants will receive an ACER certificate of achievement.

Using and interpreting data in schools is a foundation level professional learning course that complements PAT Professional Learning.  The course is  focused on developing teachers’ expertise in using and interpreting different types of data in a school context. It is designed for teachers and school leaders who wish to build solid shared understandings and shared language about the kinds of data used in schools, the different ways in which data can be represented, and what they can tell teachers about student learning.
