Annual Reports

Who are we?
The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is an independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to a simple mission: improving learning. 

What do we do?
We’re involved in the collection, analysis, interpretation and use of reliable information to assist educational decision makers – from individual teachers to system leaders and policy makers – in two ways: to help them help learners by identifying educational progress and challenges, and to help them identify and implement effective policies and practices on the basis of good evidence. That focus is about supporting learners and their needs, supporting the learning professionals who work with those learners, supporting those who maintain the educational institutions and systems in which learners and learning professionals work, and supporting our learning society.

What does that look like?
Our mission, improving learning, is clear. Our goals, to support the engagement of every learner, every learning professional, every learning institution and our learning society, is also clear. What that looks like in our day-to-day work is told in the stories on the following pages – stories of real people working to make a difference in the lives of children and young people.
