Dunning Report

Quick Reference


The Report sets out the findings of the Dunning Committee, which recommended that all pupils should be given the opportunity to take courses leading to the Scottish Certificate of Education and that both examinations and internal assessment by teachers should play a part in determining awards. It also advised that all pupils should be assessed in a way which would enable them to demonstrate positive achievement. Together with the Munn Report, this document was the basis of the focus on equality of access to education in the Scottish education system after 1977.
