This binder draws together appropriate information on assessment from the Arrangements documents, National Assessment Bank materials and update letters for National Qualifications in the Sciences. It is intended to provide an easy access point for information on assessment and it is envisaged that it will be particularly useful to faculty heads, newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and teachers presenting more than one Science. It is an additional resource to be used in conjunction with SQA Arrangements documents and National Assessment Bank materials (NABs).
