Curriculum for Excellence with Benchmarks App
Education Scotland announced that they would release the Benchmarks in June 2017 for the Curriculum for Excellence, to Teachers and practitioners in order “to provide clarity on the national standards expected within each curriculum area at each level.”
According to Education Scotland,
“Their purpose is to make clear what learners need to know and be able to do to progress through the levels, and to support consistency in teachers’ and other practitioners’ professional judgements.”
With that in mind the “Curriculum for Excellence with Benchmarks” app has build on the Curriculum for Scotland app which was produced some years earlier to create a place for the Experiences and Outcomes alongside the current Benchmarks.
The Curriculum for Excellence with Benchmarks App app doesn’t rely on data or wifi to run, so is great for using in a situation where you phone may have poor reception or need to be in airplane mode too.

This app is a development of the original Curriculum for Scotland app which can also be found below. The original app displays only the essential elements of the Curriculum for Excellence in an uncluttered way. Curriculum for Excellence with Benchmarks, builds into it the Benchmarks provided by Education Scotland.
Curriculum for Scotland (Original App)
As a qualified Secondary Teacher I felt the need to be able to access the Curriculum for Excellence when I was planning or discussing my departments’ E’s and O’s. I couldn’t always carry the huge folder around with me, nor was it appropriate to use photo copied information as it used up valuable school supplies and took up further space in my bag.
So I built a simple application that would aid in storing my E’s and O’s for all departments, easily accessible and relevant in any meeting or group I was attending. I could even use it at parents night to show parents how E’s and O’s related to other departments and inter-related with my own.
The Original “Curriculum for Scotland” app doesn’t rely on data or wifi to run, so is great for using in a situation where you phone may have poor reception or need to be in airplane mode too.
You can find Curriculum for Scotland on the App store (iPhone users) and Play Store (Android Users).
