LSG Comments on Changes to School Science Assessments

The Learned Societies’ Group on STEM Education in Scotland (LSG), which is hosted by the RSE, has commented on the planned changes to the National Course assessments in the sciences. The LSG’s letter to the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is available here.

The LSG recognises that the SQA is having to make the assessment changes within a very tight timescale that has precluded widespread consultation. The LSG continues to gather feedback from science teachers and we would be very pleased to meet with SQA colleagues to discuss these developments and how we can contribute to the process.
