Other sources of information
The VCAA Bulletin VCE, VCAL and VET is the only official source of changes to regulations and accredited studies. The VCAA Bulletin VCE, VCAL and VET, including supplements, also regularly includes advice on VCE studies. It is the responsibility of each VCE teacher to refer to each issue of the VCAA Bulletin VCE, VCAL and VET. The VCAA Bulletin VCE, VCAL and VET is sent in hard copy to all VCE providers. It is also available as an e-newsletter via free subscription on the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority’s website at www.vcaa.vic.edu.au

To assist teachers in assessing School-assessed Coursework in Units 3 and 4, the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority publishes online an assessment handbook that includes advice on the assessment tasks and performance descriptors for assessment. The current VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook contains essential information on assessment processes and other procedures.
