I completely agree with you.
VCAA desperately needs to overhaul the entire VCE Computing course.
It is a bit annoying though, as Computing seems to be one of VCAA's lower priority subjects.
Maybe if they paid a little attention to the course, they would see how badly this course needs to be rewritten.
Hopefully, with the change of the high school curriculum, it will mean that VCAA does pay attention to this potentially amazing subject (if they make coding compulsory in Year 7)

I doubt VCAA would overhaul it during an accreditation period (2016-2019). By the time the accreditation period is over, (in the worst case scenario) I fear them just completely removing the entire course rather than overhauling it. It may have gone too far down this path of being viewed as an odd love child of science, business, and legal studies with a touch of databases.

Despite some comments about the course coming from my class from last year, I hear there are still students at my secondary school who have picked up either one of or both of Informatics and SD. Doesn't look great on how many will commit to Informatics though (as I doubt they knew exactly what was taught and the focus of the assessments).

There's always hope VCAA can turn the course around.

How did you go? I don't think you'll get much discussion here from others - but i'm here!!!. I would have replied earlier but i've been on my own teaching placement for the past 3 weeks. How do you find Informatics scanz_?

Not sure if anyone will answer,

but for the first point ont eh study design, I'm kind of confused on what to know for that ' techniques used by organisations to acquire data through their interactive online solutions', as well as 'techniques to efficient and effective data collection'

My textbook isn't too clear on it :/

Thanks :)

Hi Masonjar,

Unfortunately this forum isn't very active due to the fact that Informatics isn't a very popular subject.
As for your question, rather than I explain to you, there is a website (http://www.vceit.com) created by the Mark Kelly, a former IT teacher and the man
who wrote the Informatics textbook.
He has created powerpoints addressing each key knowledge better than I or any other forum member could.

I know it's a bit late but good luck to all with their exams!

For anyone who is having trouble collecting data from their surveys.

I have posted mine in a subreddit relevant to my topic and have received 190 respondents over the past 12 hours.

Instead of frantically posting your survey in VCE pages/forums target an audience on a subreddit and post it there. You will get so many replies.

And if you need to just have a general opinion of something the /r/samplesize subreddit is a good place to put it.

How on earth are you meant to write a conclusion for the last part of the first criteria sheet?

"Draw a valid conclusion to the hypothesis that is fully substantiated"

I need to get this finished tonight and I am sooooo lost. I have no idea of where to begin.
How long should I make it? 3 sentences? 3 paragraphs?
Any help or tips would be appreciated.

The full criteria is on page 6 of this PDF

State if your hypothesis is supported or not, then summarise up how you came to that conclusion based your analysis of your data. Take in to account all your findings and bring them together. If someone were to only read that section of your report, they would have a clear idea of your overall findings and be inclined to agree with your support or refutation of the hypothesis.

Thank you soooo much. That is exactly what I needed to know. Thank You! :)

Will the answers to this years exam be posted up, after the end of examination?

been there, done that. :) All I can say is, good luck to those wanting extra resources now! Literally that's the site i've always linked to VCE Comp students. I reckon Algorithmics will end up outdoing Computing in a decade sooo...

Does it count as sharing copyrighted materials if I download all the powerpoints and upload them on the AN notes?

And yeah good luck to future students. Literally my first computing class my teacher showed us vceit.com saying it is the #1 place for resources.

Algorithmics actually looks much more interesting then informatics anyway. I only took informatics because that is what my school offered.
