titleAuthentication of work

A teacher will not accept your work if they believe that it has been copied from somewhere else. To show the teacher that your work is your own, you must:

  1. Regularly complete work in class.
  2. Hand in work regularly throughout the semester. Show the teacher drafts of work when required.
  3. Keep ALL drafts, notes etc. until the end of assessment.

If a teacher believes a student has cheated in a SAC, VCAA rules will apply. These rules are set out in the VCAA VCE Handbook.

Breaches of the rules for the conduct of assessments are considered an infringement of VCAA assessment rules and guidelines and will be investigated as per VCAA requirements. The investigations will be conducted by the Senior Sub school School Leader, Assistant Principal and/or Principal and subsequent penalties will occur as determined by the Principal.

The principal Principal makes the final decision about all cases of Special Provision.
