Launched in 2012, Improve is an online formative assessment tool developed by Education Services Australia for use by education jurisdictions. Teachers have access to numeracy, literacy and science test items, linked to more than 12,000 digital curriculum resources and activities that can be used to address specific learning outcomes.
Improve is freely available to all teachers in Australia. It captures evidence of students' achievements and provides analysis to inform program development for classes and individual students. It also provides diagnostic elements to give teachers data about students’ strengths and weaknesses.
Improve leverages the investment of the Australian Government and states and territories in curriculum and assessment resources. The linked digital resources were created and curated as part of The Learning Federation initiative. Test items are from the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) and National Assessment Program – Science Literacy. While the test items and digital curriculum resources have been available to teachers previously, mapping the two is a new approach to testing and improving students’ knowledge and skills.
