Education State Sample Assessment Programs
2019 Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) assessments
In 2016 and 2018, the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) undertook assessments in Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) with a sample of schools across Victoria to support the Education State Targets. The CCT target highlights the important role of critical and creative thinking skills in helping Victorian students to build problem solving and evaluation capability, the confidence to question, challenge and establish deeper thinking on topics, concepts, events, beliefs, cultures and society. These sample assessments will be conducted annually by the VCAA with schools across Victoria to collect Year 6 and 10 student data in CCT to track the Education State Targets.
Schools will be selected to participate in the 2019 CCT sample assessment program taking place between Monday 22 July and Friday 9 August (Weeks 2–4, Term 3).
The CCT assessment will only take approximately 75 minutes to complete via a computer, laptop or device and the VCAA will appoint an Assessment Supervisor to visit your school to facilitate the assessment session on a date selected by you.
Selected examples from the psychometrically validated VCAA critical and creative thinking assessment tasks can be accessed through FUSE at the following links for levels
