The VCAA will be conducting a series of professional development workshops for assessors of scored VCE VET programs in 2009. This workshop is similar to the one conducted in term one 2008.

The workshops will include:
•	an overview of scored assessment for new assessors
•	an overview of the 2008 coursework audit procedure
•	task selection and design, sharing tasks and ideas with other assessors whilst preparing tasks 
for 2009
•	using the VCE VET scoring criteria. 

All assessors are asked to bring:
•	the units of competence in the Units 3 and 4 sequence that you deliver
•	previously developed and draft coursework tasks
•	your assessment plan (if available) 
•	program outline (structure, timing and assessment schedule) if available
•	other resources or information you are prepared to share.

The workshop activities are designed for all assessors of VCE VET programs. Participants will be assigned into groups based on program areas. New assessors in 2009 should familiarise themselves with the structure and details of the scored assessment process by reading the relevant materials: the relevant Assessment Guide, sample Assessment Plans, VET Coursework Assessment Records (VCAR’s), scoring criteria sheets. These documents can be found on the VCAA website: 

Copies of all VCAA documentation will be available for participants at the workshops.
