Education State Sample Assessment Programs:
Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) and The Arts
The Education State Targets have been developed by the Victorian government to focus efforts on the range of factors that allow students to develop and achieve their best.
Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) and The Arts are two of the learning domains that the Government has committed to measure as part of the Education State targets. The VCAA is facilitating the measurement of these two domains through the yearly collection of data from a selection of schools across Victoria.
The following targets reflect the goals of the Education State for CCT and The Arts:
CCT: More students develop strong critical and creative thinking skills and over the next 10 years, 25% more Year 10 students will reach the highest levels of achievement in critical and creative thinking.
The Arts: More students excel in The Arts and over the next 10 years, more students will reach the highest levels of achievement in the arts.
