Notice to Schools 19/2019 − 13 March 2019

2019 VCE performance examinations – audio-visual recording arrangements

Principals/Directors, VCE Coordinators and VCE performing arts teachers

Main points

Following the successful implementation of audio-visual recording across a range of performance examinations in 2017 and 2018, this program will be further expanded in 2019 to include the following VCE external assessments:

  • VCE Dance
  • VCE VET Dance
  • VCE Drama (solo performance)
  • VCE Extended Investigation oral presentation
  • VCE VET Music Industry (group and solo performance)
  • VCE Music Performance (group and solo performance)
  • VCE Music Investigation (group and solo performance)
  • VCE Theatre Studies Monologue examination

Audio-visual recordings of student performances provide a valuable additional quality assurance measure. Recordings will not be used for any other purpose without first securing individual student consent.

Recording equipment will be placed discreetly in a fixed position on the assessor's desk in the examination room and operated by one of the assessors.

There will be no other changes to the examination room procedures and protocols.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure all relevant teachers and students are made aware of the expanded audio-visual recording arrangements for 2019.

Critical dates

Monday 7 October to Sunday 3 November 2019 – VCE performance examination and Extended Investigation oral presentation assessment period.
