Over the last few days there has been a number of new subscribers to this blog: the influx has raised the total to seventeen. I guess you new guys are somehow a byproduct of the ABC story on VCAA’s maths exams, but I’m not sure exactly how. Presumably someone wrote a social media thing saying “Marty isn’t an asshole, you should subscribe”, or “Marty is an asshole, you should subscribe”, or something. Anyway, welcome, and if you care to indicate how you got here, I’m curious.
For you new guys, who may be wondering what you signed up for, the clearest one-off indicator is the post here. For more on the VCE exams and VCAA generally, there are many posts, but you might start here and here and here and here and here. For ACARA and the Australian Curriculum, you can look here and here.
I haven’t posted for a while, being flat out with Life and with my submission to the ACT thing (which you regulars should also be doing). I do have a few things lined up, however, for later in the week: in gratitude for the reporting on VCAA, I have a couple whacks planned for education reporters; and, Red Five has suggested a new TNDOT.
Back to regular programming soon.
