This review was undertaken at the request of the Director-General of the Queensland Department of Education and Training. It reviews progress and makes recommendations ‘about initiatives aimed at improving the performance of Queensland students in literacy, numeracy and science’. More specifically, the Terms of Reference for the review requested an analysis and recommendations relating to:

  • the effectiveness of the initiatives implemented in the Government response to the five recommendations of the Queensland Education Performance Review (QEPR); and
  • the effectiveness of identified key initiatives in Queensland state primary schools to improve performance in literacy, numeracy and science.

The review was asked to make reference to the relationship between the initiatives and the Highly Effective Practices for Continuous Improvement in School Learning (Table 1.1 of QEPR Report) and to consult with Queensland education system stakeholders and undertake site visits if required to support the review’s findings or recommendations.
