VERY IMPORTANT
VCE Visual Communication and Design teachers:
The VCAA notice below refers to the school-assessed task (SAT) which is UNIT 4, Outcomes 1, 2
and 3.  
Please put the date below in your diary now. This is THE FIRST DAY OF TERM 4.
Carefully plan when students need to complete their work to give you time to assess it.
Information on all matters related to the administration of VCE assessment is published annually in the VCE
and VCAL Administrative Handbook and monthly in the VCAA Bulletin. Teachers must refer to these
publications for information on administrative procedures for School-assessed Coursework, the
School-assessed Task and the examination in Visual Communication and Design.
