Australian-American educational terms

At an educational conference I went to recently, I attended a workshop, during much of which I was hopelessly confused. It turned out that my confusion was caused by educational terms in America have different meanings in Australia.

Here then is a little table showing some of the different terms:

American Australian
Program Course
Course Subject
Assessment Evaluation
Grading Assessment

As you see, there’s plenty of scope for confusion!
