Adjusting exams to take account of disabled student's needs. Make your voice heard!

OfQual and exams access

Ofqual are seeking views on the way exams are adjusted to take account of disabled students’ needs.
Possible changes up for consultation are the way human scribes or voice recognition software are used if an exam includes a score for spelling, and whether exam certificates should indicate if pupils were exempted from some part of the qualification assessment.

In 2011, the watchdog made a series of changes to the way exams are adjusted – for example, banning the use of British Sign Language in modern foreign language exams, and limiting the number of exams from which a pupil can be entirely exempted yet still achieve a qualification.
All changes must be made in line with the Equality Act 2010.
The closing date for responses is July 31. The consultation documents are available atOfqual.gov.uk

With thanks to SchoolsWeek for making this known.
