How to get access? Any SQA approved centre can get access to current assessments for subjects that they are delivering. Simply check whether you already have valid users who can create your account and request new subject access, or if you are not a current SOLAR centre you can request access to the system. This can be done through our System/Subject Access' section, which is located under the Centres Tab.

Once a member of staff is registered they can then add further members of staff onto the system. Finding SOLAR Just use Google to search for SQA SOLAR From here teachers can click on CENTRE LOGIN

Pupils would click on ENTER KEYCODE to start an assessment Using OpenAssess If you want to prepare for an assessment, or if you want the pupils to become more familiar with the layout of SOLAR, then you can click on OpenAssess. These questions can be accessed and answered

without a keycode. What can SOLAR be used for in Mathematics? All 3 unit assessments of the Applications of Mathematics courses (Nat 3 to Nat 5 including Numeracy) National 4 Numeracy Lifeskills Mathematics National 2 Units

Adding Pupil Information to SOLAR When you login if you click on the CANDIDATES tab you can click on UPLOAD CANDIDATES to upload pupil information. I would recommend that you collect a spreadsheet of pupil information from your school office as this is a quick way to

upload large groups of pupils. Creating Classes/Cohorts Once pupil information has been added to SOLAR you can click on the COHORTS tab to place pupils into classes.

Creating An Assessment To create an assessment click the ASSESSMENT SCHEDULES tab and then click CREATE ASSESSMENT at the bottom of the page. From here follow the onscreen instructions to create the assessment. I would advice choosing more than

one day of the assessment. This allows you to pause and resume assessments from the Invigilation tab. Lets look at a Numeracy assessment created on SOLAR National 5 Numeracy (can be booked as one

outcome or by assessment standard) Other Notes Manually marked questions Results tab (including using CANDIDATE BREAKDOWN to find out which parts were failed in order to organise resits.
