REVISION FOR 'PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE' QUESTION
IN 2010 (and 2011) EXAM - QUESTION 6 was the 'PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE' question.
This question is linked to VCE Visual Communication and Design Unit 3 Outcome 3.
The Report on the 2010 VCE EXAM included statistics about how well (or poorly) students answered
each part of each question. THE STATISTICS FOR QUESTION 6 ARE ALARMING.
Each year the Report makes comments about the apparent lack of learning and understanding that
should come from students undertaking UNIT 3, Outcome 3. There obviously has to be some
teaching and revision in the classroom rather than just relying on students doing their own
research (sometimes very limited) and presentation.
