Education - qualifications and assessment review: consultation

We are consulting on the options for change as part of Professor Hayward's independent review of the future of qualifications and assessment. We are inviting responses to this consultation by 16 December 2022.

5. Technology and Assessment

5.1 Topic: The Potential of Technology

Background: Scotland has learned a lot from the experience of the Covid-19 pandemic, including how technology can be used to support learning. However, we are also mindful that we cannot assume that everyone has equal access to technology or has the skills they need to use it effectively.

Some countries make much greater use of technology in assessment and qualifications. For example, some have a system whereby learners’ achievements in their senior phase are assessed online. Others use technology to give learners different styles and types of assessment e.g., on-line simulations. Some countries use digital profiles to gather and present information on learners achievements.

Question 7: How should Scotland’s qualifications and assessment system make best use of digital technologies?
