What works? Explorations in improving outcomes for Indigenous students
In December 1997, Australia launched a series of Strategic Results Projects (SRPs) designed to explore methods for improving outcomes of aboriginal students. This major report summarizes results from more than 80 funded projects focusing on one or more of the following priorities: educational delivery practices; Commonwealth priorities in literacy, numeracy, and vocational education and training; key transition points; and a broad number of issues ranging from increased participation and attendance to more accurate assessment. The overarching finding was that learning outcomes for Indigenous students can be accelerated when educators combine commitment with high expectations and with what is generally regarded as good teaching and learning practice.
