The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is a statutory authority of the Government of Victoria responsible for the provision of curriculum and assessment programs for students in Victoria, Australia. The VCAA reports directly to the Victorian Minister for Education through the VCAA Board.

At the senior secondary level, the VCAA provides curriculum and assessment for the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).

At the Prep to Year 10 level, the VCAA provides curriculum for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) and administers the Achievement Improvement Monitor (AIM) program which provides an indication of the literacy and numeracy skills of students. Students in Victoria undertake the testing in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.
