Profiling High Numeracy Achievement
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v9 n4 p35-38 2004
Profiling high numeracy achievement is the South Australian Department of Education and Children's Services component of the Australian Government funded Strategic Numeracy Research and Development Initiative. This article presents the Profiling High Numeracy Achievement Project Team report on the South Australian Department of Education and Children's Services numeracy project. The South Australian project was managed collaboratively by the South Australian Primary Principals' Association and the Learning Outcomes and Curriculum Group. The Flinders Institute for the Study of Teaching conducted the research component of the project. The project investigated factors enabling students to become high numeracy performers. It aimed to identify whole-school structures and effective teaching practices that support improved numeracy outcomes, and to develop a coordinated and strategic plan for numeracy improvement at the system, school, and classroom level. Key findings from this research indicate that more substantial and enduring changes to numeracy practices require a whole-school response to ensure an integrated and coherent approach to school planning, professional development, and resource acquisition.
