What is the impact of high-stakes testing on Indigenous students? What will be the impact of a national curriculum on Indigenous students? How will the national curriculum take account of the experiences of culturally and linguistically diverse students?
The Queensland Studies Authority and the Queensland University of Technology are working together to identify the issues by examining experiences both in Australia and in other countries.
Professor Allan Luke has been investigating issues related to improving the schooling experiences of Indigenous students. He is working with academics in other countries and making available papers with the potential to inform the construction of national curriculum, assessment and testing in Australia.
Additional papers will be added as the research continues.
