Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) has developed progression points to support teachers in independent schools with the implementation of version 8 of the Australian Curriculum. This work has been completed with support from officers at the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority.
Schools are encouraged to consider how the progression points could be used to:
- diagnose through formative assessment, the capabilities, strengths and weaknesses of individual students
- plan teaching programs to meet the needs of individuals and groups of students
- formally assess the progress of individuals and groups of students
- report to parents on the achievements of their children against the Australian curriculum.

The “demonstrating” column in these progression points accurately reflects the expectations of version 8 of the Australian Curriculum achievement standards, with more detail and examples included.
ISQ welcomes any suggestions for improvement from teachers working very closely with the progression points.
