Following feedback from partners and stakeholders, SQA has developed material to help centres manage the assessment of the new National Qualifications that are being introduced from 2013/14. This has been done in partnership with colleagues from ADES, SLS, SCIS and Scotland's Colleges.

Further information on assessment and the role it plays in the new National Qualifications has been published on SQA's website, along with the following supporting documents:

1. A set of key questions which Centre Managers may wish to refer to during strategic and operational planning for assessment of the new National Qualifications.

2. A set of tables which outline the Course structures and assessment methods for Courses from National 2 to National 5.
