National 5 assessment resources

We are publishing subject-specific assessment resources to support you when gathering key pieces of evidence to inform National 5 estimates. These resources are intended to help you reinforce your understanding of the standards to be applied to assessment evidence, with a particular focus on gathering evidence that has a high predictive value aligned to the required assessment components.
