   Dear teachers and school leaders, The Australian Council for Education Research (ACER) in partnership with the Catholic Diocese of Ballarat will deliver a best practice information session on the Progressive Achievement (PAT) tests and the Online Assessment and Reporting System (OARS) platform in preparation for your schools PAT testing period.

We look forward to supporting your school’s PAT testing. Mark Pimlott (ACER)
