SOLAR - New Version

New SOLAR to launch in August

We will be introducing a refreshed version of the SQA e-assessment system SOLAR in mid-August.

We are making this change to ensure our services are as flexible and easily accessible as possible. The look and feel of the system will be updated, and the user interface and reporting facility will be enhanced. Some minor changes to system functions are being introduced.

Changes for SOLAR users

You will receive an automated e-mail before the new system goes live, giving directions on changing your password. Once you have done this, you will be able to login and access SOLAR. Your SOLAR username will remain the same.

Your centre will need to reschedule any existing assessments to create updated keycodes in the new system. The main scheduling process and features in SecureAssess will remain the same.

If you require SecureClient, this will still be available to deliver assessments off-line. However, you will need to uninstall the old version and install a new version in advance.

We will provide more information about this, and links to support materials including a new User guide, before the new system goes live.

If you have any questions, please e-mail solar@sqa.org.uk.
