Queensland schools continue to work towards full implementation, that is plan, teach, assess and report using the F–10 Australian Curriculum.
The QCAA and Queensland's school sectors — State Schools, Queensland Catholic Education Commission and Independent Schools Queensland — have developed advice, guidelines and resources to support schools during the transition to the Australian Curriculum.
National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions
ACARA has released the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions, which have been created in consultation with literacy and numeracy experts, using evidence-based research. The QCAA advises that the progressions are a resource that schools may choose to use.
Purpose of progressions for teachers:
- to determine an individual student’s literacy and numeracy development
- to identify students who have not yet reached, or have exceeded, the age-equivalent curriculum expectations of the Australian Curriculum: English and Mathematics
- to understand the typical sequence of learning for literacy and numeracy
- to determine teaching adjustments to ensure all students make progress.
The National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions are available in the Resources section of the Australian Curriculum website.
