The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is a statutory authority continued under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) (the Act).
The information collected through this questionnaire is used by the VCAA to facilitate the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) School-based Assessment Audit, as part of the VCAA's responsibilities under the Act.
When you provide your name and email address in the questionnaire, this is 'personal information' within the meaning of the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic) (the PDP Act). Personal information is used, disclosed and handled by the VCAA in accordance with the PDP Act.
After the year in which the questionnaire is conducted, the VCAA stores questionnaire responses securely on its own servers, and retains and destroys the Data in accordance with the Public Records Act 1973 (Vic).
