Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) on the impact of curriculum and assessment arrangements within high performing countries

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 22 October 2013
The REA focuses on published literature in relation to Canada, Finland, Korea, New Zealand and Singapore.

The study uses a rigorous REA method including use of defined literature search terms and inclusion and exclusion criteria to identify only the most suitable evidence for inclusion in the REA.

In considering the curriculum and assessment arrangements in each of these countries the REA identifies common characteristics and the key skills and competencies of each. When examining the assessment arrangements the report not only examines at what age assessment takes place but also examines what type of assessment is conducted and the methods used for assessment.
