Online course to help you determine estimates
We have developed a new online course to support you with gathering assessment evidence, applying national standards and determining estimates in National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses.
Our new course, ‘Estimates for National Courses: gathering assessment evidence and applying national standards’, combines guidance and examples of national standards, with links to online Understanding Standards resources. It also includes some reflections from the review of centre evidence gathered during the 2022 exam diet, as well as information on quality assuring estimates.
You can access the course on SQA Academy at www.sqaacademy.org.uk. You will need a log-in to view the course.

This course is suitable for SQA co-ordinators, department and curriculum leaders, and teachers and lecturers in SQA-approved centres.
Refreshed estimates guidance
We have also refreshed our guide, ‘National Courses: guidance on evidence for estimates’, based on feedback, to clarify wording in a few areas. We have also included some additional text to help with checking the validity of assessments.
