School-based Assessment in 2018

Units 3 and 4 School-assessed Task
The School-assessed Task contributes 50 per cent to the study score and is commenced in
Unit 3 and completed in Unit 4.
Teachers will provide to the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) a score
against each criterion that represents an assessment of the student’s level of performance
for Unit 3 Outcome 2 and Unit 4 Outcome 2. The recorded scores must be based on the
teacher’s assessment of the student’s performance according to the criteria on pages 7–16.
This assessment is subject to the VCAA’s statistical moderation process.
The 2018 VCE Art assessment sheet on page 23 is to be used by teachers to record scores.
The completed assessment sheet for each student’s School-assessed Task must be
available on request by the VCAA. The performance descriptors for the assessment criteria
are published annually on the Art study page of the VCAA website and notification of their
publication is given in the February VCAA Bulletin. Details of authentication requirements
and administrative arrangements for School-assessed Tasks will be updated annually and
published in the current years VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook.
The Authentication Record Form on page 19 and Teacher Additional Comment Sheet on
pages 21 and 22 are to be used to record information for each student and must be made
available on request by the VCAA.
The School-assessed Task has two components.
 Unit 3 Outcome 2
 Unit 4 Outcome 2.
Finished artwork/s submitted at the completion of Unit 3 must have secure storage at school
until such time as they are released to be assessed collectively with finished artworks
completed in Unit 4.
Students must acknowledge and employ appropriate health and safety practices relevant to
their practical work with respect to themselves and the environment.
Teachers should be aware of the dates of submission of scores into VASS in June and
November. These dates are published in the VCE Important Administrative Dates and
Assessment Schedule, published annually on the VCAA website.

Unit 3
Investigation and interpretation through art making

Outcome 2
On completion of this unit the student should be able to use the art process to produce at
least one artwork, and use the Analytical Frameworks to document and evaluate the
progressive development and refinement of their artistic practice.


Nature of task
The task is to produce a body of work that presents broad and creative explorations within
the selected art form/s and/or media. The work includes both written and visual material that
clearly demonstrates personal thinking and working practices. The work focuses on creative
exploration, investigation and experimentation and includes at least one finished artwork.
Students use appropriate aspects of the Analytical Frameworks to reflect upon and annotate
their work.

Scope of task
A range of visual responses should be developed in a visual diary to demonstrate the
student’s ideas, concepts and observations. Sound and video recording of performance art
or site-specific artwork may be required, depending on the medium selected by the student.
Written and visual responses should demonstrate the student’s development of thinking and
working with personal ideas and concepts and employ the analytical frameworks to reflect
upon and develop further works. The written and visual documentation should demonstrate
how the student applies materials and techniques to develop and refine an effective visual
language. The student’s use of visual language should demonstrate an aesthetic
understanding at each stage of the artmaking process, and the application of the art
elements and principles and skills in artmaking.
At least one finished artwork must be produced in addition to the developmental work. A
finished artwork is one that is judged by the student to best demonstrate their acquisition of
the key knowledge and key skills for the outcome. The students’ knowledge of the visual
language that reflects their artistic practice and demonstrates the communication of their
ideas, concepts and skill in their application of techniques and materials is included in a
visual diary. Evidence of initial ideas, exploration, investigation and experimentation of
materials and techniques in the body of work accompanied by reflective annotations should
be linked to the finished artwork. The finished artwork should be completed within the
specified timeframe and clearly labelled ‘Finished artwork Unit 3’. Students must submit at
least one finished artwork for Unit 3 to be eligible for an S for the Unit.
Students should clearly identify the Analytical Frameworks when reflecting on, evaluating
and annotating their artmaking. They should label and use appropriate aspects and
language of the Analytical Frameworks. Use of the Analytical Frameworks should be
identified and applied from the initial exploration of personal art responses, ideas, concepts
and observations through to the finished art works.

Students should:
 develop their own art responses that are inspired by personal ideas, concepts and
  observations
 develop a visual language that reflects imagination and demonstrates the development of
  personal ideas, concepts and the approaches to the investigation of materials,
  techniques, processes and artform/s
 engage in personal exploration, reflection, analysis and evaluation as they progressively
  develop and refine their ideas
 document any processes from initial investigation and experimentation of materials and
  techniques in art form/s through to the resolution and refinement of art works
 document, analyse and reflect on thinking and working practices using the language and
  context of relevant Analytical Frameworks, as appropriate, to support their reflection on
  the structural, personal, cultural and contemporary aspects of their artworks. Selected
  Analytical Frameworks must be clearly identified and labelled within the content of the
  annotation.
The body of work may have a number of starting points and multiple directions. Starting
points in the art process might involve:
 experimental exploration of media and materials
 investigation into the qualities of art form/s
 exploration of themes or concepts and aesthetic considerations used by artists through a
  variety of approaches.
In addition to the finished artwork/s, the exploration and experimentation is part of the
student’s body of work.
The refinement of ideas leading to at least one finished artwork might occur through:
   trialling and refining techniques and processes
   progressive resolution of ideas and skills
   progressive annotation and evaluation of explorations and investigations
   realisation of defined objectives, experiments, explorations and concepts
   appropriate technical skill to complete at least one finished artwork by the end of Unit 3.
The effective communication of thinking and working practices in the refinement of ideas and
concepts must be documented with visual and written material. This may include:
 grouping, numbering, dating and/or commenting on specific aspects or sections of work
  from initial concept to the resolution of ideas
 related photographs, models and/or experimental proofs explaining the sequential
  development of work/s in progress
 progressive annotation, explanation and evaluation of ideas, concepts and visual
  directions
 work organised chronologically, thematically and/or stylistically to logically reflect the
  students’ conceptual approach to their practical work.
Students should support the development and refinement of their artwork/s using
appropriate written and visual material throughout Units 3 and 4.

Unit 4
Realisation and resolution

Outcome 2
On completion of this unit the student should be able to apply the art process to
progressively communicate ideas, directions and personal concepts in a body of work that
includes at least one finished artwork, and use selected aspects of the Analytical
Frameworks to underpin reflections on their art making.


Nature of task
Students produce a refined body of work that builds on the investigation and artistic practice
developed in Unit 3 and further develops a visual language reflecting imagination and the
progressive exploration, experimentation, development and refinement of concepts, ideas
and skills. The work includes both written and visual material that communicates ideas and
directions within selected art form/s and the effective manipulation of art elements and
principles.
Students identify, label and use appropriate aspects and language of the Analytical
Frameworks to reflect upon and annotate their work.
The use of the Frameworks must demonstrate informed selections and contribute to the
reflective annotation of art works.

Scope of task
A range of visual responses are developed into a body of work that demonstrates the
student’s ideas, concepts and observations using a range of materials and techniques. In
Unit 4 students continue to explore and experiment with ideas, concepts, materials and
techniques to develop, refine and resolve them into finished artwork/s.
The use of visual language should demonstrate the ability to manipulate art elements and
principles and demonstrate the further exploration and experimentation, development and
refinement of ideas, concepts, use of materials and technical skill. The refinement of a
visual language includes the reflection of imagination used in conjunction with skills and
techniques to communicate and demonstrate progressive development of ideas and
personal concepts.
All the student’s investigation, experimentation, exploration, development, refinement and
resolution contribute to and constitute their body of work. One finished artwork/s must be
produced in Unit 4. A finished artwork is one that is judged by the student to best
demonstrate their acquisition of the key knowledge and key skills for the outcome. The
finished artwork/s must demonstrate the use of visual language that reflects imagination and
the communication of the student’s ideas, concepts and skill in their application of
techniques and materials.
It should be evident that the finished artwork/s in this unit is a progression from the ideas,
exploration and artwork/s presented at the completion of Unit 3. The progression should be
evidenced in the ideas and concepts and the use of techniques, materials and processes in
the body of work. Written responses in Unit 4 should demonstrate further exploration,
experimentation, progression and refinement on the work produced in Unit 3. The

VCE Art: Administrative information for School-based Assessment in 2018



documentation should demonstrate how the student applies materials and techniques to
achieve an effective visual language and indicate a progressive development of concepts
and ideas.
The manipulation of art elements and principles and technical qualities should be supported
by the application of materials and techniques. Evidence of initial ideas and exploration,
investigation, experimentation, development and refinement of materials and techniques in
the body of work and in accompanying annotations should be linked to the finished artwork.
The investigations and personal explorations of Unit 3 may be continued in Unit 4 and must
evolve from the previous investigations in Unit 3. However, there must be evidence of further
progression of these investigations, exploration, development, refinement and resolution in
the body of work.
Students continue to select the appropriate aspects and language of the Analytical
Frameworks to reflect on and annotate their work in an informed manner. Students must
select the specific language and appropriate concepts of the Analytical Frameworks to
support their reflective annotation when discussing aspects of their art-making. Students
continue to select the appropriate aspects and language of selected Analytical Frameworks
to support their developed and reflective annotation on the structural, personal, cultural and
contemporary aspects of their art making. The Analytical Frameworks selected by the
student must be identified throughout their annotations. Students clearly indicate the
explorations and experimentation or the continued development, progression and refinement
of their ideas, directions, skills and application of materials and techniques and how these
constitute a body of work.
Students should:
 continue to develop the body of work begun in Unit 3 and complete at least one finished
  artwork/s for Unit 4
 continue to reflect on personal concepts as they further explore and experiment and
  progressively develop, refine and resolve their artworks
 investigate, explore, experiment, refine and show their developed knowledge of materials,
  processes and art forms
 continue to analyse and reflect on thinking and working practices in an informed way,
  using the language and context of the Analytical Frameworks as appropriate to support
  their reflection on the structural, personal, cultural and/or contemporary aspects of their
  artworks
 apply and clearly identify selected Analytical Framework/s when annotating their work to
  demonstrate reflection on the context and influences on their work and on-going inquiry
  and refinement of a visual language
 continue to document their thinking and working practices to reflect exploration,
  experimentation, development, refinement, resolution and developed skill
 provide documentation that indicates the initial idea/s or concepts, the refinement of these
  directions and the resolution of all finished artwork/s.
The realisation and resolution of students’ thinking and working practices, the further
exploration and experimentation, and the refinement of ideas and concepts must be
effectively communicated and documented with visual and written material. This may
include:
 grouping, numbering, dating and/or commenting on specific aspects or sections of work
  from initial concept to the resolution of ideas

VCE Art: Administrative information for School-based Assessment in 2018



 related photographs, models and/or experimental proofs explaining the sequential
  development of work/s in progress through to refinement of finished artwork/s
 progressive annotation, explanation and evaluation of ideas, concepts and visual
  directions
 work organised chronologically, thematically and/or stylistically to logically reflect the
  students’ conceptual approach to their practical work.

Framing of Finished Work
Students should consider carefully the presentation of their finished artworks. Presentation
should be carefully considered to ensure that the surface qualities of the work are not
obscured, and the close examination of the use of materials and techniques is not
obstructed. Framing of artworks is not required; however, if it is considered as part of the
presentation of the finished artworks then the student should ensure that this is part of the
process of refinement of the finished works. It should be remembered that the use of glass,
perspex, plastic or other such materials may obscure the surface and obstruct the close
examination of the techniques and texture of the medium/media used in the work presented
for assessment. If these materials are used, they are considered to be part of the finished
artwork. Any framing, mounting or use of these materials should be undertaken by the
student. Any framing considerations should be included in the Authentication documentation.
Presenting a series of images in a concertina book would be considered one artwork.
Mounting more than one piece of work in a multi-cut mount may be considered one final
artwork as such and does not present a range of finished artworks. An installation work,
documented in the final evaluation document, may consist of many individual works but
should be considered in refinement as one work.

Authentication of VCE Art
School-assessed Task (SAT)
Teachers are reminded of the need to comply with the authentication requirements specified in the
Assessment: School-based Assessment section of the VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook
2018. This is important to ensure that ‘undue assistance [is] not … provided to students while
undertaking assessment tasks’.
Teachers must be aware of the following requirements for the authentication of VCE Art School-
assessed Tasks:
1.    The body of work created for the School-assessed Task (SAT) is based on work developed
      and completed in Unit 3 Outcome 2 and Unit 4 Outcome 2.
2.    Teachers are required to fill out the Authentication Record Form and Additional Comment
      Sheet and provide the student with feedback on their progress at each observation.
3.    The study design requires students to document how any assistance will be sought and/or
      use of appropriated images or other material will be acknowledged or copyright observed.
      Students should refer to the VCAA Copyright guidelines of the VCAA Season of Excellence
      webpage for information regarding copyright and third-party material. It should be noted that
      all applications to Top Arts must have written copyright clearance for the use of third party
      material:
      www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/Pages/excellenceawards/seasonofexcellence/generalinfo/copyright.aspx
4.    The VCE Art study design notes that ‘work related to the outcomes of each unit will be
      accepted only if the teacher can attest that, to the best of their knowledge, all
      unacknowledged work is the student’s own’.
5.    Undue assistance should not occur at any time during the development of the body of work
      and teachers need to be vigilant. Students are required to demonstrate development of their
      artistic practices. The progressive realisation of the body of work should reflect personal
      concepts, ideas, directions, explorations, aesthetic qualities and technical skills. Teachers are
      reminded that it is not appropriate to provide ‘detailed advice on, corrections to, or actual
      reworking of students’ drafts or productions or folios’.
6.    Teachers must sight and monitor the development and documentation of the student’s art
      process throughout the unit to authenticate the work as the student’s own. Students must
      acknowledge the source of materials and information used to support the development of
      ideas, including materials identified for inspiration and further development.
      This includes documentation of any appropriated imagery, with information detailing how the
      work has evolved from the source imagery.
7.    Students should be encouraged to complete their artwork at school. Where they use external
      service providers, their documentation should demonstrate that they have researched and
      identified the appropriate and correct technical methods required and also created their own
      specifications for the service provider. This includes visual documentation. Receipts are not
      acceptable as documentation. The student’s documentation will show their complete creative
      control over the making of their artwork. Without this evidence the teacher may not be able to
      authenticate the student’s artwork or apply the SAT assessment criteria fairly.




© VCAA                                              Page 17
VCE Art: Administrative information for School-based Assessment in 2018




      During development of the body of work, teachers must plan and use observations of student
      work in order to monitor and record each student’s progress as part of the authentication
      process. The further exploration, experimentation, development, refinement and resolution of
      student work should be clearly documented for Authentication purposes. Teachers cannot
      assess any work produced in Unit 3 in Unit 4.
8.    Teachers must ensure that all source and reference material, all appropriate imagery used in
      the final artwork, all use of non-school (home, outsourced) resources and any external
      assistance (for example, tutors) are acknowledged on the authentication form. If a student
      acknowledges using appropriated imagery, outsourcing production and/or receiving external
      assistance the teacher should record complete details as an attachment to the Authentication
      Form.
9.    The use of external support and/or equipment must be planned and documented with
      appropriate detail to demonstrate that the student has retained complete creative control;
      teachers must certify that such support does not constitute undue assistance.
      This ensures the body of work can be authenticated and that the student is not receiving
      undue assistance and in turn ensures that all students are assessed equitably.
10.   Framing of finished artworks or any aspect of the body of work is not required. However,
      students should use appropriate labelling to clearly identify their finished artwork and label as
      ‘Finished artwork Unit 3’ and ‘Finished artwork Unit 4’. If the artwork has the framing as part of
      the artwork then the student should clearly document the use of framing and how this
      contributes to the refinement of ideas, aesthetics, techniques and processes. Identification of
      the refinement is also required in their documentation and evaluation.
11.   If a student is not meeting the expectations of the study or is at risk of not completing the art
      process, teachers must indicate this on the Authentication Record Form and advise the
      student of this situation. Clear evidence about what the student needs to do to complete the
      art process in order to receive a satisfactory assessment must be recorded on the
      Authentication Record Form and the Additional Comment sheets and must discussed directly
      with the student.
12.   Teachers are reminded that the authentication procedures are required to be followed for all
      student work in relation to this SAT. School-based Assessment Audits include the inspection of
      authentication records. Where authentication records are not provided, the school is
      automatically audited the following year. Authentication records and Additional comment
      sheets will also be required to be forwarded for all works nominated for the Season of
      Excellence in 2018. Incomplete authentication records will result in an automatic
      disqualification of the student work from the nomination process.

                                        School-assessed Task: Investigation and Interpretation, Realisation and Resolution
  This assessment sheet will assist teachers to determine their score for each student. Teachers need to make judgments on the student's performance for each     student number
  criterion. Teachers will be required to choose one number from 0–10 to indicate how the student performed on each criterion with comments, as appropriate.
  Teachers then add the subtotals to determine the total score.                                                                                                   assessing school number
