Learned Societies’ Group letter to Scottish Government on COVID-19 and reduction in examinable course content for 2020-21

The Learned Societies’ Group on Scottish STEM Education (LSG) wrote to Scottish Government’s COVID-19 Education Recovery Group to recommend a reduction in examinable course content for 2020-21 in reflection of the widespread disruptions to teaching and learning brought on by the pandemic. The letter explains that it would be unreasonable to expect the same extent of course content to be assessed in external examinations and assignments in the 2021 assessment diet as would normally be the case.
