An overview of use

 

Exemplar  5   TRANSITION  - SQA

 

Institution: e-Portfolio context:  

 

Dates of provision: 

 

Reason for implementation: SQA use PebblePad to support their new Scottish Baccalaureate qualifications (See http://www.sqa.org.uk/sqa/34638.html) .  They were keen to see how we could build on the common e-portfolio platform to make a smooth transition for any students successfully applying to edinburgh through the baccaluareate route.

Purpose/s:  Transition to/ from the institution, 

 

Learning processes involved:   Information capture, Information retrieval, Planning,  Collaboration,

 

 Practice: Failed to develop - as yet! Our admissions team did not anticipate many applicants coming via this route.  This seemed ideal to us as a small scale trial, but I have been totally unsuccessful in arranging further discussion. Perhaps the timing is wrong - and I will try again once applications are closer to being finalised. It may still be possible to identify a small number of students entering via a baccalaureate route, and then to explore how to manage the effective and smooth transition of their portfolio from SQA to Edinburgh.

 

Key staff involved: Schools recruitment office, SQA, IS eportfolio team
