Thanks again Claire. Strangely it is re-assuring that we are all in the same vague space concerning the requirements of the course - its also part of its appeal. Because of the statistical moderation (whatever its called) that is applied to the kids results, in the end it does'nt mean too much. I keep telling my class "you won't know everything, just know more than someone else".
I have set them the task of compiling a glossary of a minimum of 100 words, from previous exams and the package. I would be happy to share what my students come up with.
What are others doing?.

  No sorry Glenn, I wish we knew more. I think they can expect something in the prac but if the examiners follow the training package - the only time CSS is actually mentioned is in relation to formatting text. If anyone can find other references, please let me know.


  I was actually telling people at tonight's session that this year we don't plan to run our usual student exam revision lecture because we prefer to wait and see what the new exam is like and go from there. Of course, many things should stay the same and the general principles apply, but we felt there would be lots of questions, such as your class has, and that we couldn't really answer them with any certainty.


  I think your kids have every right to feel nervous, teachers definitely should. Last training package was vague and very non specific in some aspects. The new one is just choc full of required knowledge and skills. Has anyone actually been able to produce a comprehensive glossary of terms in the 6 units-a huge job! Yet any one of them could be used as the basis for a question. And whilst we train the students in the competencies in all their glory - there's a big difference between that and preparing to be assessed in an exam situation.


  PixelEd is producing a sample exam, which people can adapt/modify to suit their expectations and teaching. The committee has no insider knowledge, we just pooled our thoughts, based on the VCAA advice that is available and came up with a resource that may help teachers.

  We will post details to the list very (very) soon.



  PS sorry about session time - it's hard to find something that suits everyone. I'm really restricted by my meetings and other commitments. Will try and look and other times next term.

  Thanks for all your efforts Claire. I was unable to participate - got home at 6.50 after staff meeting and travel time. Appreciate the links and will follow up.

  Any news/details on the exam. My class want to know how much CSS they need to know and will it be part of the prac? etc. etc. Nervous or curious? I am not sure. The latter most likely.

    Hi Everyone,

    Tonight's Elluminate with Brett from acmi was really useful, and I would recommend you check out their new online resource at http://generator.acmi.net.au/
