LHS Senior Phase Assessment Calendar- Version 1

Thursday 5th November 2020

Please find the LHS Senior Phase Assessment Calendar 2020-21 below. The purpose of the Assessment Calendar is to provide an overview of assessment and key coursework deadlines for Senior Phase courses to help students plan their learning.

It is important to note that this is a ‘live’ document and will be subject to ongoing change. The next set of information regarding N5 courses is due from the SQA by the 19th November and the subject entries will be updated as appropriate.

There are many different types of assessment event on the calendar: some will be ‘prelim’ events, others are ongoing class assessments to support learning and teaching; some are practical performance activities; others are coursework deadlines. As we are now working on a two week timetable, please note that some assessments may fall in the week either side of the entry noted.

Class teachers will discuss upcoming assessments with classes in advance so that students are clear about what is expected. Furthermore, all Senior Phase courses are supported by a range of on-line resources in each Google Classroom. Please speak to your child for further detail.

We are currently working on strategies to ensure that particularly busy times on the calendar are managed to support students. We are also currently planning how to manage prelims to ensure that our approach is COVID safe and that assessments are appropriately timed and spaced.

Events on the calendar will help inform our Tracking and Reporting about students’ progress; some of the assessment events on the calendar may be used as evidence to inform and support estimate grades. Further guidance on estimates will be made available in the Subject Rationales once we receive further information from the SQA.

We plan to share an updated version of the calendar in early December.
