INCA (International Review of Curriculum and Assessment Frameworks) internet archive

During the period 1996 to 2013, the International Review of Curriculum and Assessment Frameworks Internet Archive, known as INCA, provided descriptions of government policy on education in 21 countries worldwide.  It was originally commissioned by the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority (SCAA) in England and funded and supported by its successors - the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA).  Following the closure of QCDA in 2011, the INCA website was supported by the Department for Education.  Content has always been managed and updated by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER).

INCA focussed on the curriculum, assessment and initial teacher training frameworks for pre-school, primary, lower secondary and upper secondary education in schools (3-19 age range) in Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the USA and Wales.

A snapshot of the website was taken in February 2013 by the National Archives. 

Selected pdf files from the former INCA Archive are available on this INCA Thematic Probes and Studies page.  

The remaining content of the former INCA Archive is also available in the form of individual pdf files by contacting us.
