Important Note - From 15 June 2022 Internet Explorer will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
Currently to access On Demand testing teachers must log into the school server using IE 9 or above. As of 15 June 2022 Internet Explorer will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
Microsoft Edge will continue to support Internet Explorer Mode for the foreseeable future and some configuration changes will need to be made to PCs that need to access the On Demand administration portal.
How to access the On Demand administration portal after 15 June 2022
Two options have been identified to assist schools to continue to access the tests:
- Enable Internet Explorer Mode in MS Edge on a local PC and add the required On Demand URLs to the IE Mode site list. Sites added to IE Mode in this way will expire after 30 days and need to be re-added.
- School technicians / systems administrators can configure a Group Policy to automatically enable IE Mode in Edge and define a list of sites to be opened in this mode.
See instructions to implement these options.
We encourage you to work with your IT support to implement the most appropriate option. Please note that VCAA and the On Demand Helpdesk cannot provide troubleshooting support for the configuration of Group Policy.
On Demand Testing is an online resource for teachers to use when, where and how they choose. Tests are designed to link to curriculum and standards. It is a time-saving tool that can be administered to a single student and/or a whole class.
The On Demand testing program uses the VCAA Assessment Online software, a decentralised computer-based system where schools download tests from the VCAA central server and distribute them via the school's Local Area Network (LAN).
Government schools can access the On Demand program via the CASES/CASES 21 Server.
Non-Government schools need to have a server that meets the specifications stated under Technical Requirements.
