VCAL Quality Assurance 2018
The information contained in this VCAL Quality Assurance Kit is aimed at providing clear guidelines for the quality assurance of teachers’ professional judgements about assessment of VCAL units and the design of VCAL unit tasks.
Quality Assurance (QA) is an important part of the VCAL and all Principals/Directors should allow appropriate staff to participate in the VCAL QA process and attend VCAL QA meetings if required. The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) strongly recommend that the teacher who completes the sample assessment task template also attend the QA meeting/s.
VCAL Providers (Schools/Non Schools) who do not participate in the regional VCAL quality assurance process may be required to submit all their VCAL units for further investigation by the VCAA VCAL Unit.
All VCAL providers are allocated to one of
three categories for quality assurance. Please refer to the
contact details for VCAL Quality Assurance panel leaders (VLTs) and the
2018 allocations of VCAL strands to VCAA VCAL QA regions.
VCAL providers with more than one campus are reminded that, for the purposes of QA, each campus is regarded as a standalone provider. Therefore each campus needs to provide a VCAL SATT (Sample Assessment Task Template) by the due date and participate in the QA Process as required.
