Evaluation of the Pilot Implementation of the Victorian Department of Education and Training's Ultranet Program

The Assessment Research Centre at the University of Melbourne was asked to evaluate the pilot implementation of the Victorian Department of Education and Training’s new technology-based tool, the Student@Centre Ultranet, in twelve pilot schools. The Ultranet initiative was expected to establish an innovative information management model to support system-wide school improvement, including a range of integrated teaching and administrative functions. In 2005, the evaluation included the development of a range of data collection instruments for use by schools and the Department, and identification of opportunities for improvement over the pilot period and strategies to inform a full rollout of the Ultranet across Victorian schools.
