The Australian Research Council oversees the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) national research evaluation framework. ERA identifies and promotes excellence across the full spectrum of research activity in Australia’s higher education institutions. The School of Education is currently listed at ERA Level 3, classified as at world standard. The School aims to increase its ERA ranking to 4 by 2018.

ERA reporting uses Field of Research (FOR) and Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) codes to classify research disciplines and themes. These are used to identify areas of strength in Australian universities and to highlight areas of critical economic and social importance.

FOR codes categorise Research and Development activities according to their field of research; it is the methodology being considered. The School of Education aims to contribute focused and influential research to the education sector by reporting in the Education FOR codes.
