Abstract

Organisational change theory often discusses the differences between adaptive change and transformational change; adaptive change being the process of incremental shifts that are intended to drive improvement, while transformational change requires major alterations in processes. In 2019, ACER embarked on a mission to develop a new adaptive testing and reporting system, with the goal of delivering an assessment that would improve the precision of results for every student. While the intention was to introduce an adaptive change in the assessments, the project truly transformed the way that ACER delivers assessments and reports results, a result recognised by the project being listed as a finalist by the e-Assessment Association’s 2022 International e-Assessment Awards in the category of Best Transformational Project. This session will discuss the project and what has made ACER’s new Adaptive assessment and reporting system transformational.
