SEMINAR 7: The Implementation of PAT in south Australian Schools

SPEAKERS:
Dr. Katherine Dix: ACER Senior Research Fellow, MPhil Science (University of Adelaide)
Mr. Marc Kralj: ACER Education Consultant
ABSTRACT: ACER's Progressive Achievement approach is used in thousands of schools in Ausralia and around the world. The approach focuses on assessing and monitoring student growth over time and is underpinned by an understanding that students of the same age and in the same year of school can be at very different points in their learning and development.

ACER's approach is informed by a growth mindset - tailoring teaching to the needs of the individual learner to advance the progress of every student, regardless of their starting point. In South Australia, alll government schools, most catholic schools, and a growing number of Independent schools now use PAT Maths and Reading Comprehension. this seminar showcases the PAT tools and considers why and how schools are using PAT to improve the learning outcomes of their students.
