Assessment for Learning
Welcome to the Assessment for Learning website. This site has been developed by Curriculum Corporation
on behalf of the education departments of the States, Territories and Commonwealth of Australia.

Assessment for learning is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there.photo of four students

Assessment tasks

There are 32 assessment tasks, covering the learning areas of English, Science, Studies of Society and Environment and Health and Physical Education, Languages Other Than English, Technology, The Arts and Mathematics - or their State and Territory equivalents.

Professional learning

One of the main purposes of this site is to provide professional learning for teachers in regard to Assessment for Learning. The assessment tasks are therefore supported by professional learning modules, each of which covers a separate aspect of Assessment for Learning.
