New Advanced Higher coursework information
31 March 2015
We have published coursework information for all new Advanced Higher Courses that will include coursework (assignments, projects etc) as part of the Course assessment. These documents have been developed to support teachers and lecturers, and to help prepare candidates for the Advanced Higher Course assessment.
The coursework information has been published in two parts – General assessment information and coursework assessment tasks, as follows:
- General assessment information – this document gives an overview of the coursework task that candidates will do, and outlines what is required. It includes information on how the task will be carried out, the work to be submitted by candidates, who will mark it and the general marking instructions that will be used. General assessment information may be useful to candidates, teachers and lecturers, and may also be of interest to parents and carers. It is available from the relevant subject pages under ‘Advanced Higher’.
- Coursework assessment tasks – These are confidential documents, which are held on our secure website for teachers and lecturers. They contain the coursework tasks that will be used in the live assessments. Teachers and lecturers can arrange access to these documents through their SQA Co-ordinator
Advanced Higher Coursework assessment tasks are valid from August 2015. They must be stored securely and treated as confidential.
