Teaching & Learning Audit
Education Queensland Teaching & Learning Audit
In 2010, the Queensland Government introduced comprehensive audit requirements for state schools in the area of teaching and learning. During 2010, all Queensland state schools were audited against eight domains contained in the Audit Instrument.
The Audit Instrument was developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) under contract to the Department of Education and Training using international research. It is informed by Education Queensland's Roadmap for curriculum, teaching, assessment and reporting and is based on the findings and recommendations from the 2009 report by Professor Geoff Masters, "A Shared Challenge: Improving Literacy, Numeracy and Science Learning in Queensland Primary Schools". 1.3M
In 2011, the department is continuing to audit Queensland state schools in line with each school's Quadrennial School Review, the term after a new permanent principal is appointed or at the request of the principal. Schools will not be audited more than once in any 12 month period and new or re-opened schools are audited late in their second year of operation.
