Australian Council for Educational Research

ACER is one of the world’s leading educational research centres. Our mission is to create and promote research-based knowledge, products and services that can be used to improve learning across the lifespan.

ACER has built a strong reputation as a provider of reliable support and expertise to education policymakers and professional practitioners since it was established in 1930.

As an independent non-government organisation, ACER generates its entire income through contracted research and development projects, and through developing and distributing products and services, with operating surplus directed back into research and development.
