The Developing an Evidence Base for Best Practice in Mathematics Education project aimed to identify factors that influence the learning and teaching of mathematics in Australian schools. The purpose of the project was to build a compelling evidence base for national best practice in mathematics education. This goal was achieved through examining mathematics education practices in schools (termed successful schools) that achieved superior gains or high performance in the numeracy component of The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). This study was commissioned by the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS), and the research team was led by Associate Professor Rosemary Callingham from the University of Tasmania.
