Each year the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) conducts an audit of school-assessed coursework. This article explains the process and provides advice for completing the survey and developing SAC tasks. It also provides some general feedback from the State Reviewers of VCE Accounting, Business Management, Economics, Industry & Enterprise and Legal Studies to help you implement assessment more effectively.

Why does the VCAA audit?
Audits are an important part of the VCAA’s relationship with schools. The audit provides the VCAA with the opportunity to:
- ensure that school-based assessment is conducted in line with VCAA principles of assessment and the requirements of the study design
- check that school-assessed coursework tasks are designed appropriately to allow students to achieve the outcomes
- gather feedback about how curriculum and assessment are implemented.
