This book is a comprehensive history of the Australian Council for Educational Research throughout the 50 years of its existence. It is based on an examination of the archival material accumulated at the ACER, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Australian Archives, and the records of the Australian Education Council. It examines the interest and impact of the Carnegie Corporation on the early years of the ACER, reports on the development of educational research in Australia and the influence of the ACER on it. The ACER's interest in educational and psychological measurement is explained, and its range of other activities in publication, curriculum development, and educational service is described.
