Technology and SQA Assessment Arrangements Conversation - Chromebooks

**Webinar Archive**

This webinar is an opportunity to discuss the use of Chromebooks for pupils who require Assessment Arrangements in SQA examinations. Chromebooks are being provided on a '1 to 1' basis to learners in secondary schools in Highland, Aberdeen, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire while many schools in other local authorities either make 1:1 provision or have stocks of Chromebooks for shared use.

The webinar will comprise a short introduction to Assessment Arrangements and a demonstration of some ways that Chromebooks can read and access Digital Question Papers and write answers. However, there seem to be many as yet unresolved barriers around the use of Chromebooks in examinations and so we will not be providing definitive answers!

We are describing this session as a conversation because educational technology has changed hugely since 2019 and there is a need for all stakeholders involved with assessment and examinations to share knowledge and experiences to plan for the future. We hope to be joined by colleagues from SQA.
