VCE Diagnostic Topic Tests

Neap Diagnostic tests by topic are uniquely designed for teachers to help their students maximise VCE results. Teachers are able to use Neap's Diagnostic Topic Tests (DTTs) to easily monitor the performance of students and to identify their strengths and weaknesses during the course of the teaching year. Not just a collection of assessment items, Neap DTTs provide a diagnostic profile of each student and the class as a whole. Teachers can identify and isolate misconceptions as they occur and can address these immediately before new work is presented. They incorporate approaches to answering questions, identify concepts being tested and rules and formula to be applied, offer advice and hints on effective exam techniques and provide a break-down of the mark allotment for each question.

Features of Neap's Diagnostic Topic Tests:

  • new and original questions written for newly accredited courses
  • questions that develop skills and competencies appropriate to each topic
  • an identification of concepts being tested
  • different approaches to answering questions
  • an identification of rules and formulas to be applied
  • fully-worked solutions to all questions
  • advice and hints on effective exam techniques
  • diagnostic comments and mark allocations to all questions

Each set covers all topics in all Areas of Study with individual tests ready to photocopy and use as needed. Tests contain exam-style questions making them suitable for both topic-testing and exam practice. Fully-worked solutions to all questions are provided along with diagnostic comments and mark allocation.

Neap DTTs are specifically written when a course has been newly accredited by the VCAA. The extensive network of teachers who produce Neap DTTs are all experts in their fields and have vast experience in teaching the VCE. They include State Reviewers of the VCE, experienced writers and markers of VCE exam papers, authors of current VCE textbooks, members of verification and review boards for VCE subjects, and panel members on the implementation of the Victorian schools curriculum. This ensures that all new curriculum requirements for each subject, as set by the VCAA, are encompassed in every set of DTTs produced.
