III this paper an argument is presented that if competency assessment is to make any contribution as a potentially "liberating" curriculum strategy for struggles of commu~ nity development and self~determination thell it needs to contest the authoritarianism of the national qualification frameworks that have been established in Australia and New Zealand. This article critiques research and policy efforts, in particular for indigenous learners which seeh to merely make authoritarian curriculum and assessment structures more culturally appropriate, more accessible and equitable rather than changing and democratisillg the structures themselves.
