Braille/Adapted Question Paper Modifier

A Braille/Adapted Question Paper Modifier undertakes the review and modification of the content of an SQA examination question paper (or similar examination material) to ensure it is accessible for blind/visually impaired candidates, in accordance with SQA policy and instructions. The content of question papers may need to be modified to reduce visual complexity and layout and, where necessary, reduce visual content, while still meeting the same assessment objectives as the original question paper. These activities will be under the direction of staff from SQA's Qualifications and Operations business directorates as appropriate.
