The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is an independent authority providing a rigorous, national approach to education through the national curriculum, national assessment program and national data collection and reporting program. ACARA collaborates with teachers, principals, governments, state and territory education authorities, professional education associations, community groups and the general public to develop national education standards that are applied across every school in Australia. ACARA's mission is to improve the learning of all young Australians through world-class school curriculum, assessment and reporting. Significant reports including the annual National Report on Schooling in Australia– the major report of statistical and related information about educational outcomes – and national data standards manuals are published on this site in the Reporting section.
