Collaborative Approaches to Developing Assessment and Support Materials for NQGAs TranSETT Project Transforming Scottish Education Through Technology
BackgroundBackground SQA, SFEU and COLEG have formed a partnership to create technology enhanced resources for new NQGA awards. An ESF project bid for the creation of innovative new resources over a variety of curriculum areas has been submitted. This project will build on experience of HN Modernisation and in particular of ESF funding to support development of support materials. April 08 - March 2011. ESF funding not confirmed. Support materials will be created over the three years for up to 66 NQGA awards.
PartnershipPartnership SQA have responsibility for overall management and administration of the project and e-assessment production. COLEG have responsibility for production of e-learning materials and paper-based Teaching & Learning packs. SFEU will develop training programmes and workshops for Qualification Design Teams (QDT) and Centre staff involved in creation of e-assessments and Support materials.
OutputsOutputs –66 redesigned and modernised NQGA awards. –E-assessments for nearly 200 units –More than 100 packs of e-learning materials for mandatory units within high uptake NQGAs. –More than 100 Student and Tutor Guides for mandatory units within high uptake NQGAs. –Training for staff in centres developing or delivering new on-line learning or assessment materials. –Collaborative approach to development and use of materials that helps to develop and share good practice.
Technology enhanced resources – SQA/COLEG Scottish OnLine Assessment Resources (Solar) - Objective-type questions - Pre-moderated and guaranteed on delivery. - Curriculum areas already developed for HN include:Solar Computing, Care, Engineering, Languages, Sports. Web-based learning resources - www.e-learning-computing.comwww.e-learning-computing.com
SFEUSFEU Training progammes/workshops for Qualification Design Teams (QDT) and Centre staff involved in content creation. Through these workshops the QDT will consider the option of technology-enhanced resources for each qualification at the design stage. The workshops will also ensure a consistent approach through the lifecycle of qualification development from initial scoping to delivery.
ImpactImpact Overall aim of the project is to widen access, enhance learner experience and increase flexibility through: –Embedding the principles of innovative learning and assessment methods into new NQGA design and development. –Increasing the amount of learning resources available to learners. –Significantly improving the flexibility and availability of learning and assessment materials.
ImpactImpact –Increasing the capacity of centres to develop and deliver new ICT based learning and assessment materials. –Using technology based resources to increase access for distance learners. –Enhancing cross-sectoral collaboration in qualification development and delivery. –Upskilling centre involved in designing and delivering new qualifications using ICT.
