This research has been conducted as part of the Department of Education and Early Childhood
Development (DEECD) Victoria, Research and Evaluation Partnerships, and aims to investigate the
influences of teaching practice on student achievement. The research follows on from work on the
Literacy Assessment Project, conducted for the Catholic Education Office, Archdioceses of
Melbourne (CEOM), and Assessment and Learning Partnerships (ALP), a collaborative, large-scale
Australian Research Council Linkage project between the University of Melbourne, the DEECD
Victoria and CEOM.

Recommendations focus on:

  • Avenues for promoting the results of the project.
  • The merit pay debate and the necessity for discussions of both the upper and lower quartiles of student improvement in this context.
  • Media strategy and campaigning to broaden public perceptions of equality of opportunity and closing the opportunity gap, in order to spotlight the challenge of developing our higherorder skills students.
  • The clear need for a re-think of professional development for teachers and the development of programs to address the lack of growth in upper quartile students.

The initial report is attached.
