Recommendations are made on reducing attrition in areas of admissions processes, curriculum change, bridging pathways, peer-mentoring, and active learning. Other project themes included the development of workshops to support engineering academics, the revision of Engineers Australia‘s competency standards for the three accredited engineering qualifications, and a review of pathways and access to engineering qualifications. Five leaflets address key issues from the report.
The Resource Library contains a collection of higher education learning and teaching materials flowing from projects funded by the Commonwealth of Australia including those from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.

Good Practice Report: Assessment of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students
This good practice report, commissioned by the ALTC, provides a summative evaluation of useful outcomes and good practices from ALTC projects and fellowships on the assessment of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students. The report contains:
- a summative evaluation of the good practices and key outcomes for teaching and learning from completed ALTC projects and fellowships
- a literature review of the good practices and key outcomes for teaching and learning from national and international research
- the proposed outcomes and resources for teaching and learning which will be produced by current incomplete ALTC projects and fellowships
- identifies areas in which further work or development are appropriate.
