Thanks Jeanean and Brian,

Your messages couldn't have come at a better time as far as PixelEd morale

We are a very small committee  and we run 'on the smell of an oily rag'. 

Unfortunately, we didn't get any newcomers to the AGM, so we have all
'saddled up' for another year!

Our 'new' committee and Office Bearers are:

Claire Bloom President

Jo Trim Secretary

Marian Stoney Treasurer

Ana Tuckerman Web Manager

Michelle Dennis Events-Resources Coordinator


We don't have an office or admin staff; and as we always aim to keep the
costs as low as possible, we may not be as slick as some would like.

We'd love to hear any constructive criticism - please feel free to email me
off list.


It's good to hear the practice exam was of some use.

We do try and convey teacher feelings to VCAA and certainly let them know
our concerns regarding last year's exam (and the sample questions they
provided in 2010)

So let's hope this year's exam is a great one!!


Keep an eye on the list for upcoming PD and a new resource package of Year 1



Claire Bloom

(on behalf of PixelEd Committee)

I agree, it was a well pitched exam. I think we should ask VCAA to hand over
the IDM exam setting duties to PixelEd.

I would like to say thank you to PixelEd for the excellent exam revision
this year. 


We were unable to be a part of the elluminate revision session and I am very
regretful about that, but we have made very good use of the recording. I do
hope this happens again next year,  because I will make sure we are better
prepared so that we can be a part of it.


The PixelEd practice exam was very good. My students completed that
yesterday and I feel they are slowly becoming a bit more confident for this


I'm not sure about other schools, but my students here at Highview have been
feeling very frightened about the IDM exam. We looked at the examiner's
report from last year as we went over each question from the 2010 exam and
they were continually astounded to see the large percentage of students who
did not answer correctly. (Some of those questions were shockers - even I
was confused about what was being asked of me!)


So Thankyou PixelEd for helping me help my students to feel better prepared
for the scary exam!
