Luke, Allan, Woods, Annette F., Land, Ray, Bahr, Mark, & McFarland, Margaret (2002) Accountability: Inclusive Assessment, Monitoring And Reporting. Research Report prepared for the Queensland Indigenous Education Consultative Body. The University of Queensland.
This aim of this study was to investigate how current practices for assessment, evaluation and reporting of student outcomes in Queensland schools address distinctive educational needs, challenges and capabilities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. The study describes the contexts and current status of a broad range of assessment practices found in school – informal and formal, standardised and non-standardised. These include: system-wide standardised testing, school-based diagnostic procedures, and classroom based evaluation and reporting to parents. The major focus of this study is on a meta-analysis of the 2000 Queensland Year 5 Aspects of Literacy and Numeracy Tests results, items and data sets. Beyond the publicly available test score results, this was the most comprehensive and current data set made available to the research team. The analysis of this data was used to identify several key areas for further research, development and policy. The report concludes with recommendations for system and school-level interventions in the area of testing and assessment.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
