              In this powerful, must-read expose, the formidable Walkley award-winning journalists Sarah Ferguson and Tony Jones have teamed up to expand on the ground-breaking ABC documentary Revelation to lay bare the criminal actions of priests and brothers within the Catholic Church. Follo...wing court cases, visiting perpetrators in prison and uncovering secrets the Church has hidden for years, Ferguson and Jones take us on a journey from local Australian parishes to Ireland and all the way to the Vatican to uncover why the Church's most senior power-brokers did nothing to stop the evil within. This is a book that will have repercussions for perpetrators as it lifts the veil on Australia's worst serial paedophiles. Because of the robes they wore and the positions they held, these men were trusted, welcomed into homes and schools to target our most vulnerable. How did this happen? What drove these men to commit these acts? Compelling and confronting, these two investigative journalists take us into the heart of darkness to ensure the systems of concealment are shattered and the protection stops. We owe it to all the victims to understand their pain and suffering so that abuse like this never happens again.

Liliana's hitting all the wrong notes. She's a sixteen-year-old exchange student with a secret crush on Carter, her ne...w band's smoking hot guitarist - but she's also got a girlfriend back home. So when she writes a song about him and it lands the band a record deal, she quickly realises she's in hot water.

              How can data analysis inform effective assessment practice?Assessment is central to learning. It is not just about testing or measuring learning; it is an integral part of curriculum, pedagogyand student learning. Practical Classroom Assessment demonstrates how and why assessment... should be firmly embedded in the day-to-day practices of learning and teaching. It addresses current issues in the teaching and study of assessment planning and shows how assessment can be used to aid, support and enable learning. It provides pre-service and practising teachers with strategies to develop the skills, competencies and confidence to conduct assessments that will enrich their students' learning. New to this EditionAddresses the growing need for data analysis by showing students how to use data to inform their assessment practice. This will also assist students in meeting the fifth AITSL professional practice standard: 'Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning'Chapter 15: Classroom Implications of Standardised Testing and Examinations has been revised and updated to align with the national curriculumChapter 4: From Assessing with Standards to Assessing with Learning Progressions explores an increasingly important trend in assessment - determining student progress, rather than attainment. One of the main recommendations of the Gonski 2.0 report (2018) was that schools should be able to demonstrate that all students had made one year's progress in one academic year. What this means for classroom assessment is introduced and explored in this chapterChapter 13: Assessment in Primary and Lower Secondary Years in State and Australian Curricula allows for a greater focus on the primary and lower secondary years. Along with Chapters 12 to 14 looking at the differences between assessment practices in different stages of education from early childhood to senior secondary.
