Guidance on how the SNSA can be delivered in a way that is compatible with a play-based classroom environment Implementation guidance and training which is available online, outside of the SNSA 3. system, so that all educators can access it at a time that is convenient 4. A publicly available rationale setting out the possible uses and purposes of the SNSA within the broader assessment framework of Scottish schools ­– to ensure the assessments are not perceived as “high stakes”
