For those of you teaching in Victoria, Australia, today was the day our Year 12 students received their final grades for their Victorian Certificate of Education in Drama and Theatre Studies.
Just wondering how teachers went with their students’ grades this year? The solo performance exam in Drama is always a tricky beast in which to predict or anticipate grades and often causes confusion among the drama teaching fraternity. Of course, students always want to do well in this task, also. Add to this what I have learned in recent years in particular … never underestimate the power of the written exam and its contribution to a student’s final study score in both these subjects, regardless of its published weighting.
If your students did well, here’s the spot to tell the world (no names or schools, please)!
