Introduction: Many educators are questioning the current direction being taken in Australian education, particularly when considering that a number of overseas national testing regimes have been abandoned in the light of a plateauing in school achievement (Fullan, 2009; Hargreaves & Shirley, 2009). An Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (2006) report highlighted that 'reforms have ultimately come up against a wall, or rather a ceiling, beyond which further progress seems impossible' (p. 187). The report also noted that perhaps reform is not enough and that instead schools need to be 'reinvented'.
