Education State Sample Assessment Programs

Education State Sample Assessment Programs

2019 assessment periods

Measuring excellence in Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) and The Arts

In 2019 the VCAA will conduct sample assessment programs in CCT and The Arts with a sample of schools across Victoria. This is an exciting opportunity for schools to be involved in the collection of statewide data in CCT and The Arts. The assessments support the Education State Targets and were also conducted between 2016 and 2018. The participation of students from sampled schools will play a significant role in the tracking of these important targets.

The timing of the 2019 assessment periods are as follows:

The Arts

  • Monday 27 May to Friday 28 June 2019; Term 2, weeks 6–10
  • Monday 15 July to Friday 16 August 2019; Term 3, weeks 1-5


  • Monday 22 July to Friday 9 August 2019; Term 3, weeks 2 - 4

Note: If your school is selected to participate, your Principal will be notified by email in Term 1 with additional details about the assessment programs.
