Measurement Framework for National Key Performance Measures
Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (NJ1)
In 1999, Ministers responsible for school education agreed to the new set of "National Goals for Schooling in the Twenty-First Century," with the aim of providing high quality schooling in Australia which would secure for students the necessary knowledge, understanding, skills and values for a productive and rewarding life. As a consequence, the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) set in train a process to enable nationally comparable reporting of progress against the "National Goals." The "Measurement Framework for National Key Performance Measures" takes account of all MCEETYA decisions related to measuring performance against the "National Goals" agreed to in 1999. It sets out a basis for reporting progress towards the achievement of the National Goals by Australian school students by drawing on the agreed definitions of Key Performance Measures. The core of the Framework is a schedule setting out the Key Performance Measures and an agreed assessment and reporting cycle for the period 2006-2014. A new set of National Goals is currently being developed for consideration by Ministers in late 2008. The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) will also finalise a set of national measures to monitor implementation of the national participation and productivity reforms. The 2009 Measurement Framework will be informed by the new goals and COAG measures and targets that relate to school education. (Contains 19 footnotes.)
