E-assessment as default

I attended an internal SQA staff update session this morning and one of the key messages coming out of it was that e-assessment "should be the default position" for new qualifications. In other words, rather than justify its use, we should justify when it's not used. By and large, we're still producing paper assessments - and sometimes assessments that are actually barriers to e-assessment - so this is important news.

I plan to produce some guidance for my assessment exemplar writers to illustrate how, in Computing, we can put this into practice. For example, on Saturday I attended a training event for writers of assessments for the new HND Interactive Media units so this is a good opportunity to put this into practice.
