Education State Sample Assessment Programs

2020 assessment periods

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

In 2020 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 that commenced in 2016. The participation of students from sampled schools will play a significant role in the tracking of these important targets.

The timing of the 2020 assessment periods are as follows:

The Arts

  • Monday 25 May to Friday 26 June 2020; Term 2, weeks 6–11
  • Monday 13 July to Friday 14 August 2020; Term 3, weeks 1–5


  • Monday 20 July to Friday 7 August 2020; 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.
