Notice to Schools 24/2017 − 1 March 2017

2017 VCAA Arts Provision Survey

Principals/Directors

Main Points

In 2016, the VCAA piloted Education State Target Assessments in Critical and Creative Thinking and the Arts with a sample of schools. The schools and assessors who were involved in the pilot assessments found the process to be a positive experience.

These sample assessments will be conducted again in 2017. To assist the VCAA with planning for assessments in the Arts, we are asking for your assistance by completing a short survey (which should take no longer than a few minutes to complete) focused on which Arts disciplines are currently offered by schools at Year 6 and Year 10. The VCAA needs to access a broad range of schools with different Arts provision, and this information will help ensure relevant schools have a chance to participate in the Arts assessments.

This is an online survey, conducted on behalf of the VCAA by a third party. Before clicking on the link to the survey, read this important information about privacy on the VCAA website. By clicking on the link to proceed to the survey, you acknowledge that you have read and understood, and consent to, the terms of the Collection Notice and Privacy Statement.

Please ensure your school has completed the survey by Friday 17 March 2017. The VCAA would like to thank schools in advance for their participation in this survey.
