SACs and SATs

SACs and SATs

At Melba College students in VCE are required to sit formal assessment tasks for all of their subjects to
demonstrate their level of achievement towards the outcomes specified in the subject study designs.

School-Assessed Coursework (SAC)

A set of school-based assessment tasks that assesses each student’s
level of achievement in the subject’s outcomes. All SACs for Unit 3 and 4 VCE subjects contribute to study
scores and are statistically moderated against the examination scores.

School-assessed Task (SAT)

Tasks typically undertaken in technology and performance based subjects, which
assess specific sets of practical skills and knowledge. Teachers assess students’ level of achievement based on a
rating against specific criteria. For Unit 3&4 VCE subjects, SATs are aggregated into a total score and are
statistically moderated against the examination scores
