Notice 146 2021

Notice to Schools 146/2021 – 20 October 2021

Last day for VCE School-based Assessment results, School-assessed Task scores and Expected scores

Principals/directors, VASS administrators and VCE, VCAL and VET coordinators

The last day to enter School-based Assessment results, School-assessed Task scores and Expected scores in VASS is Wednesday 3 November.

All VCE School-based Assessment data is due, except scores for VCE VET tasks, which are due Monday 8 November.

Please make sure that all scores are entered by this date. Extensions will not be possible due to extremely tight end-of-year processing deadlines.

VASS administrators should devise suitable internal procedures for entering and auditing scores, including a schedule that allows VCE teachers to submit their scores in sufficient time for checking before and after VASS entry.

Action required

Principals/directors, please make sure all remaining coursework results and School-assessed Task scores are entered in VASS by the due date.

Critical dates

Wednesday 3 November – last day to enter VCE scores in VASS

Additional information

Scores for School-based Assessment

Best practice supports checking all results before entry, as per the following example:

  1. VASS administrators distribute class lists to teachers for entry of School-based Assessment scores.
  2. Teachers return completed lists to VASS administrators for data entry.
  3. Class lists that include the entered School-based Assessment score are distributed to teachers for checking.
  4. Teachers check the results, make any changes and return signed class lists to VASS administrators.
  5. Any changes are entered in VASS.

Please refer to the 2021 Assessment Schedule for the list of studies that require scores (look under ‘School-assessed Tasks – Wednesday 3 November’ and ‘Unit 4 School-based Assessment – Wednesday 3 November’).

VCE School-based Assessment Input Sheets

Input Sheets should be produced for distribution to the appropriate teachers using the menu ‘Results Admin > VCE Reports > School Scores > by Class’:

  • Select ‘SIAR 8 Unit 4 SAT and SAC’
  • Select a Unit or leave as ‘ALL’
  • Select the appropriate Graded Assessment or leave as ‘ALL’
  • Select a Class Code or leave blank for all classes.

Home schools with students undertaking VCE Dance (DA03) with a private provider are required to enter the coursework scores for their students. To print the appropriate ‘input’, ‘summary’ and ‘missing results’ reports for VCE Dance students, set the ‘Display Students Assessed Elsewhere’ flag to ‘Yes’.

Refer to Last day for VCE School-based Assessment results, School-assessed Task scores and expected scores for advice regarding VASS data entry.
