Enabling Technologies questionnaire

SQA wants to better understand how technology is affecting learners who use assistive technology to access learning and assessment materials in Scotland. We have produced a short questionnaire for learners who use or have used assistive technologies, to help us better understand how these shape their learning and assessment experience.

We are keen to be as inclusive and accessible for all, and the feedback from this questionnaire will help us improve the accessibility of our digital services.

Please pass the questionnaire link below to any learners who use or have used assistive technologies, and who would be willing to answer the questions:

The questionnaire is anonymous and should take less than five minutes to complete.

Interview opportunity

This research is being carried out by an external consultant, Dr Julie McElroy.

Dr McElroy would be keen to engage directly with learners who use assistive technologies to better understand their educational technologies expectations. If you have any learners who would be willing to volunteer themselves for an interview with Dr McElroy, please contact theodore.pengelley@sqa.org.uk and we will begin the process of setting up this interview.

Similarly, if you have any questions or would like any further information, please contact theodore.pengelley@sqa.org.uk.
