Exam papers go digital


TESS reports that an alternative to scribes and readers used by pupils requiring support in exams has been launched.

Scotland is the first part of the UK to offer digital papers to exam candidates, as an alternative to scribes and readers for pupils requiring support.

With the exam season fully underway this week, 209 pupils in 48 schools will use the adapted question papers to sit 509 examinations over the course of the next few weeks. This follows successful trials of adapted digital papers in 2006 and 2007 by the Scottish Qualifications Authority and CALL Scotland (the Communication, Access, Literacy and Learning team at Moray House School of Education).

But the thought of removing it all, sanding and painting is a bit overwhelming.Also, is the material on the outside of your island vinyl rather than wood? We have that in our kitchen and I haven’t been sure if paint would work well on it
