AISQ contributed to a number of significant reviews leading into 1971, including the Radford Report (which abolished external Junior Public Examination) and the subsequent Scott Review into school-based assessment in secondary schools. The outcomes of these reviews heralded a major shake-up of education. The Association set up a permanent In-Service Education Committee to provide for the complex needs of ongoing teacher education, with training and events funded by AISQ grants. In the same year, the Association illustrated its dedication to improvement across the state by way of a professional learning bank, named the AISQ Resource Centre, to enable material exchanges between member schools.
