22 © 2009 Curriculum Council Current Status of National Curriculum 8 December 2010 MCEEDYA Min - ACARA Establish a national common approach to the achievement standards, trial and validate the approach Finalise a clear and overarching framework for the AC that assures the place and integrity of all learning areas Develop the curriculum content and achievement standards as required to meet the needs of special education students

23 © 2009 Curriculum Council WA Position Minister has stated until fully developed and with content, validated achievement standards, annotated work samples linking achievement standards to grading, assessment and reporting, WA will not commence implementation. From announcement WA has said 3 years for implementation ACARA has flagged 2014 NAPLAN to be based on Australian Curriculum

24 © 2009 Curriculum Council F (pre-primary) – Year 10 Achievement Standards validation has commenced Initial phase engaged teachers to confirm – coherence, developmental progression, consistency of expectation and usability. 80 teachers cross sectoral All states October MCEEDYA

25 © 2009 Curriculum Council Nationally consistent assessment and reporting Because of variation in assessment and reporting, ACARA has proposed that there be a transition period as states move to more consistent assessment and reporting arrangements This means that over the next two years as states implement English, mathematics, science and history, teachers will be expected to use current state approaches to assessment and reporting Steering committee (DG, CEO, AISWA, CC) has stated that this is unacceptable and advised the minister accordingly

26 © 2009 Curriculum Council Framework for F-10 Curriculum Rationale, role in overall curriculum, treatment of the LAs, general capabilities, cross curriculum priorities and fit to Melbourne Declaration Assumes that for any year of schooling AC is written for up to 80% of total teaching time – peaking at 7&8 and reducing at 9&10 as core expectations are reduced Time allocations, organisation and delivery rest with education authorities and schools
