In an acknowledgement that there are 'issues' with assessment, the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) have opened a on-line consultation.

Their survey can be found here -

Having produced a few posts recently on the subject of assessment I have been keen to respond to the survey. Once I have checked to make sure it won't cause any trouble, I shall publish my response in another post.

I would urge every teacher in the country, who has ever expressed any concern over the assessment arrangements for the new qualifications to take the time (it's not quick) to make as full a response to the survey as they are able to.
