Hi Folks,
This month's VCAA Bulletin contains the information below.
Our mailing list has been very quiet - a shame as it is a great resource for teachers to discuss and share ideas,, concerns, resources etc.
It might be appropriate for teachers to discuss new exam here, and if necessary, I can refer issues/questions to VCAA.

VCE VET Creative and Digital Media: Assessment Advice to teachers
Most new CUA units of competency do not include a range statement, Range statements included key words, terms or phrases, range of contexts and conditions to which the performance criteria is applied. With the removal of range statements from the units of competency, the style and source of examination questions has changed.

For example a short answer question could include a context/stimulus to allow students to respond appropriately. Such as:
* Identify a creative thinking technique appropriate for a specific context.
* Here is an animation example, name one animation technique used in the example.

In both questions there may be a range of appropriate answers.

Examination specifications and sample examination materials have been updated to reflect the new, but equivalent, units of competency for VCE VET Creative Digital Media (formerly VCE VET Interactive Digital Media). See the VCAA Bulletin No. 26 March 2017, Examination materials: New and revised studies<http://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/Pages/correspondence/bulletins/2017/March/vce_assessment.aspx#3>.
