SQA Digital Question Papers Focus Group

Wednesday, 25 October 2017, 9:30am - 1:00pm

CALL Scotland is hosting a focus group meeting to discuss experiences and to get feedback from schools that used Digital Question Papers and technology in the 2017 SQA examination diet.

The meetings are very helpful for practitioners to share and develop good practice and so this year, SQA is opening the event to staff from any SQA presenting centre that is considering using technology in the 2018 examinations.

Cost: Free

Places are limited, so if you want to attend register your interest quickly.
