dc.description.abstract WHILE THE INTRODUCTION of the 'National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools' (Department of Education, Science and Training, 2005a) and its companion publication, 'Values for Australian Schooling Professional Learning Resources' (DEST, 2005b) signalled a resurgence of interest in values education, relatively little attention has been paid to how it might be assessed. This article argues that a more satisfactory solution than attempting to assess the attainment of specific values, like those specified in the National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools, is to base the development of assessment instruments on a synthesis of the different premises of the commonly practised approaches to values education. Thus method rather than content drives assessment. A tentative example of such an instrument is provided.
