In recent years there has been increasing interest internationally in the monitoring and reporting of student achievements in school. Australia is no exception regarding this interest. Here some of the developments regarding reporting to parents have also raised a variety of questions for research. The following paper is one attempt to meet the challenge presented. It is concerned with developing an understanding of the impact of school reporting in one Australian state, Western Australia (WA), with the aim of developing a set of propositions for discussion in teacher professional development programmes. While cognisance was taken of the associated research literature in the development of these propositions, they emerged mainly from a project which used a case study approach to develop an understanding of the variety of perspectives which the various stakeholders in WA government schools have on school reports and school reporting--past, present and future.
