VCAL Quality Assurance 2019

Purpose of the VCAL Quality Assurance process

The VCAL QA process ensures that there is a common understanding and consistency among teachers regarding assessment judgements and the design of assessment tasks for the three VCAL levels.

The VCAL QA process enables teachers to clarify their ideas about the appropriate VCAL level and tasks for their students.

A VCAL QA Panel, led by a VCAL Victorian Liaison Teacher (VLT), has been established in each VCAL QA region to:

  • establish benchmarks for consistency in the assessment of VCAL levels and VCAL learning outcomes
  • provide support and advice to VCAL teachers that will enable them to design VCAL unit assessment tasks and to make assessment judgements about successful achievement of VCAL learning outcomes
  • allocate providers to one of three categories
  • highlight outstanding practice in VCAL learning program design.
