SQA- Formal Assessments Update

Tuesday 30th March 2021

With the cancellation of external exams, all qualifications will be awarded based on ‘demonstrated attainment’. This means evidence that is completed by students under appropriate assessment conditions.

From 26th April until 11th June, Senior Phase students will be taking part in formal assessments across their subjects to support their Provisional Results.

Formal Assessments will be undertaken in class time to prioritise time for learning and teaching. We are using an approach where assessments are ‘broken up’ and ‘spaced out’ so that students can better manage their revision and progress towards their qualifications gradually.

By Thursday we have issued all Senior Phase students with a letter which specifies the dates for each of their assessments. We are also supporting this with our LHS SQA Student Guide and video on Google Classroom to help students understand the expectations of these assessments and how to access the support available to them.

In line with both local and national guidance we have developed a set of Key Principles to support our approaches to Formal Assessment which can be found in our LHS SQA Alternative Certification PARENT & CARER Guide 2020-21

Further supports are also available in the booklet called ‘What you need to know for 2021’ which is available on the SQA website here.

We will be holding another SQA Information Evening on Wednesday 31st March. Further information and booking details can be requested using our dedicated e-mail address LasswadeHS-SQA@mgfl.net
