    See the link below from the EIS looking for information to use in their negotiations with SG.
    I personally want rid of these units- there is no need for them

    I am depressed that they have given "close reading" as an example of duplication at Nat 5 and Higher. There is a duplication of a reading test but one is close reading and the other textual analysis - a "duplication" that existed in the old Higher and Ints. It's not a strong position to argue from.

    I think that depends on what assessment package you use whether it seems more like close reading or TA. I agree with their example and have replicated it on my response. For the RUAES unit assessment, I've known schools to get away with using the Paper 1 'prelim' with questions on audience and purpose tagged on the end. The criteria listed for the outcomes could apply to close reading of non-fiction or textual analysis or poetry/fiction/drama equally.

    Thanks for posting that holdingon, I would crack open a bottle of the good stuff if they dumped UASPs in my subject (and it is ALL 'duplicated' in the exam)

    Yes, it is all duplicated in the exam.
